Lizzy Caplan has signed on for the female lead in Sony Pictures' comedy The Interview.

We first reported on this project back in March, when Seth Rogen and James Franco became attached to star. The story revolves around a talk show host and a producer (Seth Rogen), who get caught up in a plot to assassinate the prime minister of North Korea. No details were given for Lizzy Caplan's character. It should be noted that our report from March indicated that James Franco may play the talk show host, although that hasn't been confirmed yet.
