What started out as a short comedy is quickly growing into something much more. Seth Rogen is onboard to both direct and star in a feature length version of his own short film, Jay and Seth VS The Apocalypse. Long time writing partner of Rogen, Evan Goldberg, is also onboard.
The original short featured Seth Rogen and Jason Stone stuck in their apartment facing an apocalypse. The feature length version will star Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel, playing themselves, stuck in an apartment, but this time there will be bigger names including James Franco, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson, all playing themselves. The plan is to have a number of big name cameos appear also.
The Hollywood reporter is stating that Sony are getting behind the film to both finance and distribute. Expect more on this as it happens, but for now you can check out the original trailer blow.
