- Seth Rogan and Elizabeth Banks have signed on to play the title roles in Kevin Smith's latest- Zack and Miri Make a Porno- in which, ummm.... Zack & Miri make a Porno? Typical for writer/ director Smith, the film will be produced by Harvey & Bob Weinstein for The Weinstein Corp. and Dimension Films. Rogan and Banks previously teamed in The 40 Year Old Virgin.This sounds like a great pairing. I've always been a Smith fan (although Jersey Girl was unbelievably bad)- and I can definitely picture Rogan playing the lead in one of his comedies. As for Banks, Smith supposedly wrote the role for Rosario Dawson, but she was not to appear in the film due to a scheduling conflict. Banks will probably do quite well as the titular Miri, as she proved in 40 Year Old Virgin that she's a capable comedienne. Also she's quite easy on the eyes. »

NEW YORK -- Knocked Up star Seth Rogen, Elizabeth Banks and Jason Mewes have signed on to star in writer-director Kevin Smith's raunchy new comedy Zack and Miri Make a Porno for the Weinstein Co. and Dimension Films.
Producer Scott Mosier's feature casts Rogen and Banks in the title roles, childhood friends who ask their buddies to make a porno to get them out of debt. Soon everyone begins having sex with everyone, leading the previously platonic Zack and Miri to re-evaluate their chaste relationship. Longtime Smith ensemble player Mewes (Dogma) plays a supporting role.
"Getting Seth in this flick is like suddenly growing an extra six inches in the crotch," said Smith, who wrote the role especially for Rogen. "And as if that wasn't awesome enough, we scored the comedically and aesthetically gifted Elizabeth, too." »
