Seth Rogen

Disney just decided to revive their gestating animation feature The Snow Queen in the form of Frozen, and now the studio is progressing on development of a spy comedy they picked up about three years ago. Variety has word that Seth Rogen is joining The B Team as producer and even has an eye for starring in the action comedy about a top secret agent being kidnapped, thus leaving his tech support team and researchers to rescue him. Sounds like the action of Spy Kids combined with the comedy of The Other Guys, especially with that title playing off the junior varsity nature of a team not nearly as skilled as the iconic A-Team.

There's no telling how soon the project might get off the ground, but with Rogen's involvement, it could come together very quickly. Between Pineapple Express and Green Hornet, Rogen has had plenty of experience with action and comedy. As for producing, he just got some great recognition in the form of a Golden Globe nomination for 50/50 in the Best Musical or Comedy category, and he's bee behind several of his own films including both of the aforementioned action comedies as well as Knocked Up, Funny People and Superbad. Rogen will next be seen hosting the Independent Spirit Awards on February 25th.
