UPDATED: Jay And Seth To Star In JAY AND SETH!!

Merrick here...

Merrick here... A trailer/backdoor sales reel was developed for this project last year & made it onto the Internet. Here's the video...
Thanks to Moriarty & Pinion_Blue for pointing us to it! Original article below...

Jay Baruchel and Seth Rogen will star in JAY AND SETH VS. THE APOCALYPSE, as well as lending their first names to the title. It's about exactly what the title implies: two dudes facing the apocalypse.
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.
Got that? More details available via THIS ARTICLE in Variety. Wonder if this will be confused with 2012, Roland Emmerich's forthcoming ode to Earth? Probably not.

    Never thought I'd say this...

    by PotSmokinAlien

    but is the Ap Pack just completely taking over all of movie comedy? Variety is the spice of life, Hollywood... that's why there are more than 1 channel on TV.<P>I'm not sick of them yet, though.

    by LordPorkington

    You're reveling in a post that features within the first ten messages? Holy shit son, get outside and live your life. PotSmokinAlien - I think that's why I fell behind on my Rogen projects, Apatow and his gang are banging out way too many movies for me to keep up with them. I wish they'd just stuck with Freaks & Geeks.

  • June 11, 2008, 10:50 a.m. CST

    Yeah, a little bit worried

    by password.swordfish

    That they'll hound themselves out of the business with over-exposure (which I don't want, cause I dig the route they take with their comedies). Although I don't know if Sandler is a good example. Make money? Yes. Funny in any way? Not so much in the past decade.

  • June 11, 2008, 10:53 a.m. CST

    Just because Rogen, Goldberg and Baruchel

    by myspoonistoobig

    are on this project doesn't mean it's an apatow project. just fyi. i mean, it looks like it but it isn't.

    Seth Rogan needs to take some time off

    by Turd Furgeson

    I'm getting real tired of his schtick... I don't want to see a one trick pony come out with a movie every 6 months... Dude, take a vacation, buy a treadmill, do something else for awhile.

  • June 11, 2008, 10:56 a.m. CST


    by skimn

    Thought it was about Jay Leno and Seth Green....hey, wait a minute...

  • June 11, 2008, 10:57 a.m. CST

    Apatow may or may not be involved...

    by LordPorkington

    But we're just saying that Rogen et al are his cronies who choose to produce way too many projects. By the way, I bet you all can't wait for the untitled Judd Apatow/Adam Sandler project that's coming your way in 2009! By the way, I'm totally serious, check out IMDB if you don't believe me.

  • June 11, 2008, 11:06 a.m. CST

    read the fine print

    by ArcadianDS

    where it says, "oh and its also almost entirely based on the Harold & Kumar movies."

    A huge, steaming pile of turds to star in my toilet bowl

    by jimmy rabbitte

    Judd Apatow's next film will feature penises.<p> Lots and lots of penises.<p> Because he is obsessed.<p> With penises.

    Looks like the result of two friends pissing around with a video camera one free afternoon, I.E. CRAFTLESS AND FUNNY ONLY TO THOSE INVOLVED. This is not an entertainment.

  • June 11, 2008, 11:19 a.m. CST

    Didn’t Jay and Silent Bob already cover this topic..

    by Engelhast

    in Dogma? This movie might turn out to be funny but is far from original.

  • June 11, 2008, 11:27 a.m. CST


    by Engelhast

    needs to do a serious supporting role in an action flick or something like that to avoid bedoming a parody of himself IMHO.

  • June 11, 2008, 11:39 a.m. CST


    by EskNerd

    You hate Seth Rogen enough to wish death upon him? Wow. Did he strap you to a chair, clip open your eyes, and force you to watch his entire oeuvre, or what? Why all the hate?

  • June 11, 2008, 11:46 a.m. CST

    yeah because everyone knows seth rogen loves speedballs

    and not just pot ... seriously, this guy is "everything wrong with film today?" what the fuck are you even talking about

    Hopefully he doesn't burn himself out like Ben Stiller did.

    Do we Dickbloods have penises? You must have one, unless you just shit me out of your anus. LOL. I love you Daddy.

    Dude Zohan was a Sandler/Apatow project as well.

    by LordPorkington

    You nominated yourself as one of the people who should have won the Lalo Schifrin cd over on the Sudden Impact talkback, yet you accuse DannyGlovers_Dickblood of being, and I quote, 'a sad, pathetic, little man', just because he wishes death on those who deserve it? Wow, that's hypocrisy for you folks.

  • June 11, 2008, 12:25 p.m. CST

    Jay and Seth...


    What's with the Apatow gang always going by their real names? Oh that's right they don't create real characters. They're always the same person, in every movie. LOL. I love you Daddy!!

    I'm glad to see Jay Baruchel getting more of a starring role. I always thought he was hilarious in supporting roles and as the main character on Undeclared.

    John McCain is not FIREPROOF


    If a candidate isn't fireproof, they really have no reason to be running. John McCain is not fireproof. So I rest my case.<p>Obama is pretty much an African American Superman, so he should win by default.

  • June 11, 2008, 12:52 p.m. CST

    Seth and Jay vs Super Obama


    Obama wins by default, because he is hip, whereas John McCain just broke his. LOL. I love you Daddy!

    Freaks and Geeks: The Reunion Movie

    by PotSmokinAlien

    I was joking about that with a friend of mine the other day and then we realized it would actually be amazing. The scenario we came up with was:<P>Lindsay has moved back home because her husband died.<P>Ken inherited his dad's gas station and has given Daniel a job there. Daniel got out of prison a few months back.<P>Nick and Kim Kelly got married and have 2 kids.<P>And that was our pathetic fan fiction-lite for the freaks. We didn't get around to the geeks. Too stoned.

    Judd Apatow really didnt have many fans when Freaks and Geeks was getting cancelled. Or when the same was happening to Undeclared. He got big afterwards when he moved to feature films.

    Usualy starring Ashton Kutcher and Dane Cook. I'm glad The Apatow guys, the "Frat Pack", Kevin Smith & Edgar Wright are making films for people just like us(The Non-Haters).

    by password.swordfish

    is an enormous douche. Actually, I'm pretty sure he posts here regularly, judging from the level of insight and humour. Apatow actually went up in my books after reading that.

    by krushjudgement

    He just doesn't do it for me at all. This whole grown slacker genre of comedy is boring. Apatow's universe is way overrated. I wonder if these movies will still be funny when the hip-factor wears off.

    The Apatow/Brazil E-mails ARE real...

    by Brians Life

    Apatow has talked about them in multiple interviews and I worked for Mark Brazil once...and yes, he is a HUMUNGEOUS douche...and a hardcore Christian who never leaves his office w/o his bible too...hmmm...doesn't SEEM very Christian of him to want some one to choke on their own blood. That said, I STILL find Rogen/Apatow/Seigel/Baruchel to be extremely funny. I mean...what are you guys basing this sudden hate on? Over-exposure?! I can understand that and it may even get to that point with me...but for right now, I'm just glad that the dudes I thought were hysterical when no one else was watching FREAKS or UNDECLARED are finally getting their due.
