Adam McKay, Seth Rogen, and Ben Schwartz Are Working on a New Movie

By

Actor/writer Ben Schwartz has written a new comedy and teamed up with Adam McKay and Seth Rogen for the project. Variety reports that McKay is officially attached to direct the untitled comedy, while Seth Rogen is set to star. Schwartz – who most recently appeared on Parks and Rec, Comedy Bang! Bang!, and tomorrow’s new release This Is Where I Leave You – will also co-star in the film. McKay and Will Ferrell’s own Gary Sanchez Productions is behind the film as well as Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s Good Universe; plot details are currently being kept under wraps. “Evan and Seth have been doing amazing things and we’re so excited to work with them,” said McKay in a statement. “Ben, not so much. Most of my problems with him are personal ones, but I have to give it up … he did come up with a great idea.”

Rogen’s statement is a little more epic: “Every two thousand years the planets of our galaxy align in a perfect line that funnels the cosmic energies of the universe to flow into one perfect comedic collaboration. The time is now. This is that project. Nothing will ever be the same.” Added Goldberg: “McKay and Schwartz are reeeeeeal smart, well-endowed guys and we couldn’t be more excited to be working with them.”
