Seth Rogen

After first hearing about the project over three years ago, it sounds like the long-gestating Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse may finally be getting off the ground. Talking recently with Movies.com co-star Seth Rogen, who will lead the film with Jay Baruchel, revealed that the project is looking to begin production in February and that he and writing partner Evan Goldberg will be co-directing the film. With that start date looming, we'll likely hear about more of the cast coming together and Rogen says, ""It's now much more than just Jay and Seth -- there's many other people vs. the apocalypse now. It's gonna be crazy."

For those who aren't aware of this project, here's the NSFW trailer that inspired the film:

This is a project that I've been looking forward to for quite some time now, and Rogen calls it "oddly personal." Likely that means the relationship between the characters in the film comes from personal experiences and such, not dissimilar to the dynamic between the two lead characters in Superbad (scripted by Rogen and Goldberg) brought to life by Jonah Hill and Michael Cera. Rogen hasn't been trolling around with the usual Apatow crew as of late, and he even confirms that he will not appear in This is Forty starring Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann. However, the work he's done on The Green Hornet, 50/50 and forthcoming films like Guilt Trip (formerly known as My Mother's Curse) with Barbra Streisand have certainly been interesting projects to take on instead.

Finally! I can't wait for this! Is the news about Daniel Radcliffe legitimate or was that just a rumor?

It seems more can be done with one's time not wasting moments on something they hate.
