Seth Rogen – The 40 Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up, and the soon to be released Pineapple Express – makes an internet video with his friend, fellow actor Jay Baruchel (also of Knocked Up), in the form of a movie trailer for an apocalyptic comedy called Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse. Funny funny, ha ha, whatever. It’s cute, good for a good laugh, but surely nobody takes it for anything MORE than that, right?
Mandate Pictures saw something in the little clip and decided to turn it into a feature film. Again, not kidding. Here’s the premise of the movie:
The story revolves around two guys who, with the end the world unfolding and the planet invaded by monsters, are ready to kill each other after being cooped up together for too long.
Rogen is a busy man, but hopes to start filming this newest project in the summer of 2009 for a 2010 release. Want to see the “trailer” that inspired the movie? Check it out below…
