Seth Rogen talks his up coming movie Pineapple Express and his other projects.
As promised, IGN Movies has the lowdown from Seth Rogen on several of his upcoming projects, which he talked about in an interview on the set of his upcoming mall-cop comedy Observe and Report (a working title which may change at a later date). The details on that set visit are still under wraps, but we can report on what else is going on for the busy comic actor.
Rogen returns to the big screen this summer in the stoner action-comedy Pineapple Express, opening August 8. In the film, which he co-wrote with partner Evan Goldberg, Rogen plays a pot-smoking process server (Rogen) who goes on the run with his drug-dealing buddy (James Franco) after witnessing a murder. Next up is the Kevin Smith comedy Zack and Miri Make a Porno, which opens in October. He plays Zack, a slacker who seeks to solve his money woes by making a porn film with his friend Miri (Elizabeth Banks).
Looking further ahead, he’s also set to team up again with frequent collaborator Judd Apatow for a new (as-yet-untitled) comedy co-staring Adam Sandler. Sandler and Rogen will both play stand-up comedians. The rest of the cast has yet to be announced, but rumors are circulating that Eric Bana may have a role.
And finally, there’s The Green Hornet, based on the character from 1930s serials and the 1960s television series. Although the project doesn’t have an official green light yet, Rogen and Goldberg have been working on a script which focuses on the relationship between the title hero and his sidekick, Kato (famously portrayed by Bruce Lee in the TV series).
