So when I first read about Medea's plan to ruin Jason's life, I immediately thought of the interview. As you remember, the dress that Medea plans to give Jason's wife to be will poison anyone who comes into contact with it. She sends in her children to give her the dress and send her to death. Similariy, in The Interview, a movie starring James Franco and Seth Rogen, involvs a talkshow host and his producer who are sent into a mission to assassinate North Korean dictator, Kim Jong Un. So, Franco and Rogen aren't really Medea, more so her two children. Medea's actually the CIA chick with the glasses that Franco's got the hots for. (kinda wierd, I know). Anyway, the two plan to use a ricin strip to kill the dictator, which will kill anyone who comes into contact with it. When I first read about the golden dress in Medea, this was the first thing I thought of.
I know its a little different from what actually happened in each respective production, and that a little poisonous strip is different from a golden dress, but I thought it was kinda funny and I needed to get in a blog post.
