Seth Rogan And Jay Baruchel Vs The Apocalypse

Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel, of ‘Knocked Up’ fame, are adapting a short film of theirs into a feature film.

I’ve been a fan of these two ever since ‘Freaks and Geeks’ and ‘Undeclared’, so this is good news. The following article from Variety provides details:

The end days are near for Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel. The pair will star in the action comedy “Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse” for Mandate Pictures.

Film is based on a comedy short from “Superbad” scribes Rogen and Evan Goldberg, which in turn was based on a story by Goldberg and Jason Stone. Rogen and Goldberg will write and produce the feature.

Several production companies vied for the rights to the comedy, which revolves, as the title implies, around two guys dealing with the apocalypse. Last summer, the project caused a stir in the blogosphere when a trailer for the short appeared on YouTube.

Mandate is aiming to shoot the pic in 2009.

Should be interesting. Rogen seems to be on a roll, and the plot sounds intriguing/hilarious.

Here’s the trailer for their short film version:
