SHH has an update on the horror comedy Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse, which Seth Rogen is developing with his long-time collaborator/co-writer (Superbad/Pineapple Express) Evan Goldberg:
“We’ve been writing our apocalypse movie, which is coming along,” Rogen said in the interview. “It’s crazy, it’s kind of a horror-comedy. We like those movies like ‘The Mist’ and stuff where it’s a bunch of people trapped in a place together and something horrible is happening outside, so that’s probably what it will be like.”

Sam Rockwell talks Cowboys & Aliens on Shortlist:
“This is going to be a fun movie. I think we pulled it off. It’s a mix of genres. I think because of the title people think it’s a comedy, and it’s not; it’s like Unforgiven meets Close Encounters [Of The Third Kind]. … I don’t think it’s really been done before. The only thing I liken it to is a movie like FROM DUSK TIL DAWN — it seems all very ‘cops and robbers’ and all of a sudden there’s vampires. It’s like that, in that you have a very formulaic western and then all of a sudden there are monsters. It’s played very real.”
