If you’re going to play in the Apatow universe, you can NOT half-ass it. Go big or go home. Well, Seth Rogen, producer and star of the film (along with Jay Baruchel) has gone big, adding frequent Apatow staples James Franco, Craig Robinson, Jonah Hill, and Danny McBride to Seth and Jay Vs. The Apocalypse. As you might imagine, the film follows the titular Jay and Seth, a stoner duo waiting out the end of days.
Aside from the casting news, Rogen has said he wants to paint a pretty “offensive” view of the apocalypse, with the only opportunity for celebrities to cameo in the film coming if they’re willing to play corpses of themselves.
Dead Steve Carell? I could get behind that.
Seth and Jay Vs. The Apocalypse begins filming in February, with Rogen and Evan Goldberg co-directing.
