  North Korea protests to White House over N. Korean comedy movie
How much free publicity can North Korea give to an upcoming movie about a plot to assassinate its leader?
We've talked about this - "The Interview" -- a comedy caper due to be released in the U.S. in the fall, is the film in question.
Well, Voice of America says Pyongyang sent a complaint letter to the White House saying the American comedy is an insult to its leader.
VOA also reported the North requested that the White House National Security Council review the protest letter, only to hear it cannot comment on the movie.
"The Interview" is an action-comedy that centers on how a talk show host and his producer, played by James Franco and Seth Rogen, embark on a CIA mission to assassinate Kim.
Pyongyang sent the UN Secretary General a letter of complaint last month calling the movie an act of war.
