The principals for Jamaica represent a stoner-tastic bunch with the announcement that Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have teamed with director Jonathan Levine (The Wackness) and writer Will Reiser, who had previously teamed with Rogen on the upcoming “cancer comedy” 50/50. Unfortunately, Rogen and Goldberg will only be serving as producers, rather than writers or actors. The cast has not yet been found/announced.
Jamaica will draw from Will Reiser’s real-life experience of travelling to the island with his grandmother when he was 14. So there might not be as many weed jokes as one would think. But rest easy, stoners, as that probably means there will just be “a lot” as opposed to “a shit ton.”
The project is being fasttracked with Mandate, so unless there’s going to be some huge unforeseen effects here, this should hit theaters in relatively short order. Which is good, because I don’t know how much longer I can hold out without seeing a grandmother in a bathing suit.
