Seth Rogen and James Franco to Live-Tweet 'The Interview' By Clip Syndicate While the last-minute decision to distribute The Interview to indie cinemas and directly on video-on-demand diminished the controversial comedy's box office potential, the film's inventive release has also opened the door to a new way of presenting a movie: Seth Rogen, his writing/directing partner Evan Goldberg and James Franco will all live-tweet during The Interview Sunday starting at 2 p.m. PST. Rogen tweeted. "Join us! It'll be like Pop-UP Video!"
