Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand Co-Starring in a Road Comedy?!
If you didn't already hear, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced 134 new members today. Among the new inductees is Seth Rogen, comedic actor extraordinaire. We know he's working on The Green Hornet as we speak and has a whole handful of other projects lined up afterwards, but there is one project you just have to hear about. Rogen is attached to and developing a road (trip?) comedy called Mother's Curse that he'll co-star in with Barbra Streisand. Yep, you heard that right, the same Barbra Streisand that brought us "Happy Days Are Here Again" and played Mrs. Focker in Meet the Fockers.
I don't really know where this news originally came from, but Drew McWeeny on HitFix confirmed with Rogen himself that it is a legitimate project in development at DreamWorks. They're still working on a script and their may be some rewrites in the future, but Rogen referred to it as "one of the many projects I may or may not do in the next fifteen years." I'm not reporting on this because I'm excited, by any means, but because this sounds like something I definitely do not want to see, ever. The first movie that pops to mind when I think of a road trip comedy involving a parent is Martin Lawrence's College Road Trip. Exactly.
