Funny People at The End of the World
Sony Pictures Entertainment has teamed with Mandate Pictures to produce The End of the World, which will mark the directorial debut of Seth Rogen, who is co-directing with his sometime writing partner Evan Goldberg, also a novice. Based on a comedic short, the film stars Jason Segel, Emma Watson, Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel, and so many more, as themselves, a group of celebrities attending a party at James Franco's house, who are ill-equipped to cope when they are faced with the apocalypse. It sounds humorous, but it also sounds like it could be the type of thing that would wear thin after 20 minutes. Still, there are a lot of funny people on board, so I'm going to keep my hopes up.
It gives me hope to think that even while we reject their current offerings, the wizards of Hollywood are hard at work producing more. They never stop trying.
