Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg Developing Unprofessionals, a Comedy Series About Low-Level United Nations Workers

Seth Rogan, known for acting in Knocked Up, Pineapple Express, and 50/50, has actually been producing tons of projects behind the scenes over the years, including the films listed, as well as many others. His most recent producing credits have been for some fan favorite series, such as Preacher and The Boys. And co-producing alongside him on all of these projects has been Evan Goldberg. The guys have a good thing going, as their projects are pretty successful. And now they have another iron in the fire.

One of the many projects in their future is a comedy series for CBS called UNprofessionals, which THR describes as follows:

The comedy will take a behind-the-scenes look at a group of the least important people working at one of the world’s most important places: the United Nations.

Jay Chandrasekhar is set to direct, with Andy Schwartz (Scrubs) and comedians Jason and Randy Sklar writing.

Seth Rogen Is a Hot, Bearded Man, and We Need to Respect Him as Such

  • Popsugar
We all know and love Seth Rogen from his long list of hilarious comedies, including The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Pineapple Express, Zack and Miri Make a Porno, and, my personal favorite, Superbad. While he was always good-looking, Seth has gotten even hotter recently, and we can't believe that there's an actual man who is this funny and this hot.

Seth has had a busy year, aside from gracing the cover of GQ's Summer issue and making us all foam at the mouths. He was the voice actor for Pumbaa in the remake of Disney's The Lion King and produced the highly anticipated Good Boys. And when Seth isn't in front or behind the camera, he's probably off being all types of adorable with his wife Lauren Miller, who was also in Superbad. Now that you're up-to-date on Seth's latest projects, let's show you why he's the definition of Hot Boy Summer.

Good Boys Review: A Hilarious & Raunchy Tween Adventure

Good Boys Review: A Hilarious & Raunchy Tween Adventure
Good Boys is a raunchy tween adventure that will have you rolling in the aisles. The film is absolutely hysterical; ninety glorious minutes of nonstop laughter. Several colleagues showered effusive praise after seeing the premiere at the SXSW film festival. My expectations walking in were quite high. I am pleased to report that Good Boys delivers on the strong word of mouth marketing. It pushes the envelope with adolescent hijinks, but has a sweetness that tempers the raw vulgarity.

Three sixth grade boys from an Illinois suburb have a serious dilemma. They want to attend the kissing party of a popular classmate, but honestly have no idea what the actual act of kissing entails. Max (Jacob Tremblay) wants his first smooch to be with Brixlee (Millie Davis), a girl he's pined for from afar. The kindhearted and honest Lucas (Keith L. Williams) supports Max, but is devastated after learning his parents will divorce.

Full Cast Confirmed For Stephen King’s The Stand Miniseries

The new miniseries version of Stephen King’s The Stand is starting to shape up with major cast announcements emerging for the series, which is likely to premiere in 2020. The recent CBS Television Critics Association presentation included a lot of new casting information about the production, as well as the close involvement of Stephen King in the finale. There may not be any major surprises in the cast, but to us it seems like a solid enough choice for the CBS All Access series.

James Marsden will be taking on the role of Stu Redman, the nominal male lead of King’s novel, building off the actor’s strong recent turns in Westworld and Dead to Me. Another key casting is Odessa Young, who will play Frannie Goldsmith, a young woman from Maine who has to deal with a pregnancy in a post-apocalyptic America. Young is less well-known than Marsden,

Stephen King to Write New Last Chapter for CBS All Access’ Adaptation of The Stand, Four Cast Members Officially Announced

Announced earlier this year, CBS All Access has now officially revealed the first casting news (confirming earlier reports) for Josh Boone's limited series adaptation of Stephen King's epic apocalyptic novel The Stand, and they've also revealed that King will write a new final chapter for the event series that won't be from the book, so even longtime fans of The Stand won't know what to expect in the new ending.

As announced in the press release below, James Marsden will play Stu Redman, Amber Heard will portray Nadine Cross, Odessa Young will play Frannie Goldsmith, and Henry Zaga will portray Nick Andros. Read on for additional details, and stay tuned to Daily Dead for more updates on The Stand limited event series.

Amazon Prime Video’s ‘The Boys’ Review

Credit: Amazon Prime Video

Superheroes have moved in some exciting directions over the past decade. The once judged and frowned-upon genre, has now been elevated to previously unimaginable heights. Almost every single property under the sun has been snapped up by Hollywood at this point. Everything from talking raccoons, life-sized ants, and telepathic caterpillars have appeared on the big screen now. To put it bluntly, no matter how beloved these characters are, there’s no denying how ludicrously surreal and outlandish the whole thing has become. One could say then, that it’s the perfect time for ‘The Boys’ to come and shake things up.

The series is developed by the all-star team of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, alongside the man behind the ironically longevous Supernatural, Eric Kripke. Based on the obscure comic book of the same name, The Boys arrives at a particularly interesting time for society and pop culture.

David Gordon Green Reportedly Returning To Direct Halloween 2 And 3

We’ll be the first to admit that when the Powers That Be (see: Blumhouse and studio head Jason Blum) chose David Gordon Green and Danny McBride to develop 2018’s Halloween movie, we were skeptical.

After all, Green’s filmography is full of comedic hits in the vein of Pineapple Express and HBO comedy Eastbound & Down, while McBride is probably best known for his rib-tickling efforts both on and off the screen. And yet, the duo surprised just about everyone when they resurrected Laurie Strode and the terrifying Michael Myers for a 21st century audience, most of whom went nuts for the blood-curdling terror that unfolded before them in the film.

With that in mind, it’s not too surprising to hear that Jason Blum and Co. are officially developing a sequel. How, exactly, they’ll get around the fact that Halloween II already exists is another question entirely,

Who Will Direct Halloween 2? Jason Blum Hopes David Gordon Green Returns

Last Halloween we were finally hit with Blumhouse and director David Gordon Green's direct sequel to John Carpenter's classic slasher movie Halloween. Recently we passed along word that the film is getting a sequel and Jamie Lee Curtis is all set to return to the iconic role of Laurie Strode. While that's all well and good, what we're really wondering is whether or not Pineapple Express and Your Highness director David Gordon Green will be back behind the camera for this new Halloween 2.

While there has still been no confirmation on the matter, even though the new movie is set to begin shooting sometime soon after Labor Day, today we have word via Halloween and Get Out producer Jason Blum that he sure hopes Green returns for Blumhouse's Halloween 2. Blum revealed this fact to a fan over on Twitter.

Jason Blum Wants David Gordon Green Back For The Halloween Sequel

Okay, we’ll admit it: when the Powers That Be (namely Blumhouse and studio head Jason Blum) appointed David Gordon Green and Danny McBride in charge of the 2018 Halloween movie, we were skeptical.

Let’s not forget that Green’s back catalog is riddled with comedic hits in the vein of Pineapple Express and HBO comedy Eastbound & Down, while McBride is perhaps best known for his rib-tickling efforts both on and off the screen. And yet, the writing duo defied the odds when they resurrected Laurie Strode and the menacing Michael Myers for a 21st century audience, most of whom reveled in the blood-curdling terror that unfolded before them.

So it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to learn that Jason Blum and Co. are officially working on a sequel. How, exactly, they’ll maneuver around the fact that Halloween II already exists is another question entirely,

We’ve got a new trailer to share with you for Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg‘s latest comedy Good Boys. The film is going to be another one of those vulgar comedies that they like to make, except this one deals with three young tween boys about to enter middle school.

Their journey ends up spiraling into “an odyssey of epically bad decisions.” For the most part I’ve enjoyed the films that Rogen and Goldberg have produced, if you do as well, then this is a movie that you might enjoy watching.

The movie did screen at SXSW and apparently audiences loved it. Here’s the movie’s synopsis:
