Another tough day at work killing motherfuckers. pic.twitter.com/TryTtwkn8X. Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) December 5, 2013 Our very first mostly official look at Seth Rogen.s next project has come via Rogen himself, and while one could feasibly assume he.s been crushing grapes to begin an excursion into wine bottling, it.s actually just fake blood on his hand. The Interview, the second feature from This is the End.s Rogen and his creative partner Evan Goldberg, is currently filming in Vancouver, and apparently we.re going to see the actor use his fists as well as his throaty voice in order to take the bad guys down. These bad guys in question are those responsible for setting up a plot to assassinate the prime minister of North Korea. Rogen plays a producer of a talk show hosted by James Franco, and the two men unwittingly get themselves mixed »

We get the chance to interview famous people every now and them. We ask them their favourite Statham movie. Here's what happens...
With The Statham heading back to UK cinemas this week with Homefront, we finally got the chance to ask the man himself the question we've been asking lots of people for years: 'what's your favourite Jason Statham movie?'
Now that he's answered it, we've gathered together lots of the responses we've had in one document. And so here it is:
Evan Goldberg: "It was him in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, right? That’s the best one."
Alice Lowe: "I've never seen any of his films. »
The Writers Guild of America has remained tough on qualifying scripts for its screenplay awards, excluding more than a dozen high-profile scripts, including John Ridley’s screenplay for “12 Years a Slave.”
The guild’s restrictions — far more rigorous than other guilds — require that scripts be produced under WGA jurisdiction or under a collective bargaining agreement in Canada, Ireland, New Zealand or the U.K. The WGA had no immediate comment on the exclusions, but the restrictions on eligibility are a longstanding practice at the guild.
Other notable screenplays excluded include Peter Morgan’s screenplay for “Rush”; Ryan Coogler’s script for “Frutivale Station”; “Philomena,” written by Steve Coogan and Jeff Pope and “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom,” penned by William Nicholson.
Voting to determine the WGA’s nominees launched Tuesday on 95 eligible screenplays — 41 in the adapted category and 54 in the original category. The guild’s restrictions also require that the »

What happens when you lock six comedians in a house for almost the entire length of a feature film? A lot of improvisation. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg teamed up to write and direct the summer blockbuster hit This Is the End, but when Rogen, Craig Robinson, James Franco, Danny McBride, Jonah Hill, and Jay Baruchel were put in the same room, no script could hold them down. Not that it wanted to.

Opening this week is the Jason Statham-starrer Homefront. Adapted by Sylvester Stallone from the Chuck Logan novel, Homefront centers on DEA agent Phil Broker (Statham) who moves to a quiet town with his daughter (Izabela Vidovic) in order to start a new life, but winds up tangling with the local druglord (James Franco), his band of thugs, and meth’d-out sister (played by Kate Bosworth in a bit of a shocking turn). Homefront also stars Winona Ryder, Rachelle Lafevre, Clancy Brown, Omar Benson Miller and Frank Grillo. For more on the film, watch the red-band or regular trailer. At the recent Los Angeles press day, I landed a video interview with Franco. He talked about whether he has more fun playing the hero or the villain, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's next film The Interview, and more. Hit the jump to watch. And here's my video interview with »

For those who don't know the name Janusz Kaminski, he's the go-to director of photography for Steven Spielberg, shooting films like Lincoln, Catch Me If You Can, Minority Report, Saving Private Ryan, Schindler's List and more. Now New York Times Magazine has commissioned the cinematographer to direct 11 different short films from various writers like J.C. Chandor, Spike Jonze, Evan Goldberg & Seth Rogen and Before Midnight trio Julie Delpy, Ethan Hawke and Richard Linklater. Their job was to write a single line of dialogue, and then a short film was created based around that writing, featuring stars like Bradley Cooper, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michel B. Jordan, Robert Redford and more. Watch! We've posted three of the short films below, but for the rest, you must check out New York Times Magazine.

Kanye West's weird, goofy music video for the song 'Bound 2' was crying out for a parody version, and two of Hollywood's biggest comedic stars have delivered. Seth Rogen and James Franco have created a video on the set of their upcoming movie, The Interview, that lampoons Ye's new video in ridiculous fashion. The 'Bound 2' video has drawn more than five million views in less than a week, and much of the response has been negative. Viewers have complained about the awkward chemistry between Kanye and Kim Kardashian, the strangely cheap green screen effects, and the (at least at first glance) shallow lyrics. All of these complaints provided plenty of fodder for Rogen and Franco, who star in a shot-for-shot remake. The obvious highlight is Rogen's shirtless, flutter-eyed impersonation of Kardashian, complete with the same motorcycle dry humping present in the original video. Check out the bromance for »

Kim Kardashian isn’t the only person willing to go topless in a music video for love – Seth Rogen bears his chest for James Franco in “Bound 3,” a shot-by-shot recreation of Kanye West’s “Bound 2″ music video. The “This Is the End” co-stars made the video (above), which debuted on Monday, during downtime on the set of Rogen’s next directorial effort, “The Interview.” See video: Does James Franco Have a European Doppelgänger? Co-written and co-directed by Evan Goldberg, the new film follows a talk show host and his producer as they unwittingly get caught up in an international assassination »

Following this summer’s excellent This Is the End, Seth Rogen is currently busy making his second directorial feature with co-director Evan Goldberg on the comedy The Interview. Rogen stars opposite James Franco in the film about a TV personality and his producer who are enlisted to help assassinate the prime minister of North Korea, but it appears that the Pineapple Express actors had a bit of downtime on set that they decided to put to good use. Rogen and Goldberg have given Kanye West’s music video for “Bound 2” the Gus Van Sant’s Psycho treatment by creating a shot-for-shot remake that puts Franco in the West role and Rogen in the place of Kim Kardashian. The result is pure comedy gold. Hit the jump to watch the video for “Bound 3.” Video courtesy of Rogen and Franco’s Twitter accounts. And here’s West’s equally hilarious video for comparison. »

Right now, James Franco and Seth Rogen are filming The Interview, the film about a handsome talk show host (Franco) and his producer (Rogen) who find themselves in way over their heads when they get involved in a plot to assassinate the leader of North Korea. Well, we just noticed a first look photo from the set of the film giving us a glimpse at the character Franco is playing, along with a CIA training facility that he and Rogen in which they will get trained to kill. These photos were released last month, but we noticed them because of an amazing shot-for-shot remake of Kanye West's most recent silly and indulgent music video with Kim Kardashian. Let's just say Franco and Rogen get pretty intimate, and it's hilarious. Look!

Earlier this week, it broke that Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg were to produce and possibly write an adaptation of the cult comic classic Preacher, with Breaking Bad series writer Sam Caitlin attached to pen the series.
Today, there have been reports that Preacher will in fact be developed by Sony Pictures Television, rather than AMC as was previously reported. However, AMC will broadcast the show within the Us, with no word as to where it will be show internationally.
Creator Garth Ennis is reportedly very pleased with Goldberg and Rogen rumoured to have "finally captured the tone" of the comic. Numerous different adaptations have been in development over the years with James Marsden at one point attached to star in the lead role, and Sam Mendes (Skyfall), D.J. Caruso (Disturbia) and Rachel Talalay (Tank Girl) all passing through the director's chair. »

The site Bleeding Cool has followed up on a previous report that AMC has given a pilot order to a TV series based on the controversial Garth Ennis comic book “Preacher”. According to BC, the show is actually being developed by Sony Pictures Television and not AMC, who has, though, nabbed North American broadcast rights. Also, yes, Seth Rogen, the man behind pot comedies and the ill-conceived “Green Hornet” movie Is behind the show’s development. Rogen, along with partner Evan Goldberg and “Breaking Bad” series writer Sam Caitlin are the trio that pitched the idea to Sony and got the greenlight. While fanboys may be screaming bloody murder at this confirmation, Ennis himself is reportedly pleased as punch with Rogen’s involvement. Moreover, Ennis reportedly believes that it is Rogen and Goldberg who have finally captured the tone which Preacher would need in order to be true to the »
AMC could be bringing the graphic novel ‘Preacher’ to their slate. The network has reportedly ordered the pilot with Pineapple Express and 50/50′s Seth Rogen on board to possibly star and produce with his partner Evan Goldberg. ‘Preacher’ comes from writers Garth Ennis and Steve Dillion. The story revolves around a Texas preacher by the name of Jesse Custer who loses faith after he is possessed by a Genesis, a supernatural creature that is described as a half demon, half angel who kills off his entire congregation.

This could be massive. Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s superb comic Western Preacher could well be on its way to TV. After languishing in Development Hell for years, the adaptation might finally go ahead under the creative guidance of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.
Rumours have begun to emerge after Rogen tweeted hints about his involvement, while Badass Digest reported that the pair, who adapted The Green Hornet for cinema, are working on a pilot for AMC.
Although it’s currently enjoying ratings success with The Walking Dead, the end of Breaking Bad and the imminent closure of Mad Men means that AMC needs to plug a major gap in its output. Preacher may be the stopper that it’s been looking for.

Bleeding Cool report that the pilot order for the small screen adaptation of Garth Ennis’ and Steve Dillon‘s Preacher has been given by Sony Pictures Television studio, and not AMC as was previously reported -- although the network will be handling Us broadcasting for the show, while not actually have any control over its development. Seth Rogen hinted (pretty strongly) that he would be involved in some way, and it seems that he and writing partner Evan Goldberg have indeed worked on the pitch for Sony Pictures along with Breaking Bad series writer Sam Caitlin. But that's not all: Bleeding Cool also reckon that Garth Ennis is very pleased, and feels that Goldberg and Rogen have "finally captured the tone" of the comic. According to the site the writer would be an active consultant if the series moves forward. More at the link below. »
Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's acclaimed comic book series Preacher might finally be making it to the screen, with rumours from Badass Digest suggesting that This Is the End duo Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are developing a pilot for AMC. According to the report AMC is hopeful that Preacher could help to fill the hole left in its schedule following the conclusion of Breaking Bad and the soon-to-be-ending Mad Men, although a rep for the cable network has refused to confirm whether there's any truth to the story.
Published between 1995 and 2000, Preacher centres on Jesse Custer, a small-town reverend who becomes possessed by an entity called Genesis, sending him on a quest to find God in order to confront Him for abandoning his creation. Various screen adaptations of the sprawling tale have been in the works over the years, with Rachel Talalay (Tank Girl) first set to direct »

Actor/comedian Seth Rogen is giving strong hints via Twitter that he's involved in the AMC adaptation of Garth Ennis' controversial DC/Vertigo comic book series, Preacher. So strong in fact, I'm no longer thinking of this one as a rumor. Whether Rogen will be portraying one of the character from the series or is involved in a producing aspect is anyone's guess. In the past, it was thought that Rogen and Evan Goldberg, who recently directed This Is The End would be working on a film adaptation but it looks like this one is indeed headed to tv. Looks like about seven of years of hard work are about to pay off. I may get to bring one of my favourite stories ever to life.— Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) November 16, 2013 Arseface. John Wayne, The Saint of Killers.— Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) November 17, 2013 Related Content: D.J. Caruso Updates Status Of Preacher »
