These days, everything Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg touches turns to gold. This is the End and Neighbors were both massive hits and we’ll see a trailer for The Interview in a week or two. The other film they’re working on is a much bigger gamble though. It’s an R-rated animated film, a genre that rarely gets a mainstream release. However, Sony Pictures is betting big on the duo as they’ve just given the film, Sausage Party, a June 3, 2016 release date.
In addition to the release date, Paul Rudd, Danny McBride and Workaholics star Anders Holm have joined the already impressive voice cast which includes Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, David Krumholtz, Kirsten Wiig, Edward Norton and Nick Kroll. Read More »
Danny McBride was destined to be a star before HBO’s Eastbound and Down, but the show really shot him into the stratosphere. So it’s no surprise the actor is returning to HBO for a brand new series. This one is called Vice Principals and was co-created by McBride and Jody Hill, the team behind Eastbound and Down. HBO has ordered it for 18 episodes with a premiere date to be determined.

So much for retirement. Just three weeks after his dramatic announcement that he would “#stopcreating” in the wake of the Daniel Clowes plagiarism scandal, Shia LaBeouf has booked a new movie.

Of all the reasons to love This Is the End, the amazing cast is by far the best. As hilarious as Seth Rogen (who also co-directed with Evan Goldberg), Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill, James Franco, Danny McBride, and Craig Robinson are individually, they’re even better together. The gang has been tight for years, and it shows in every perfectly silly riff.
We can only assume that that set must have been a hoot, what with all of these comedians trying to outdo each other. Now a gag reel from the production only lends credence to that theory. Hit the jump to see the guys getting even goofier on the set than they do in the final film.

Robots, water slides, girls dancing as Santa Claus, machine guns, roller skating, the fourth season of Eastbound and Down has it all. In 60 seconds, the full trailer for the final season of the show has so much insane, jaw-dropping and head-scratching content you’ll swear there’s no way creators Danny McBride and Jody Hill can tie it all together. They will, though, as well as the entire story of Kenny Powers. Check out the trailer below. Read More »

Walter White isn’t the only prickly small-screen antihero coming back in the next couple of weeks. Larry David is returning to television for the first time since Curb Your Enthusiasm‘s eighth season ended in 2011 with Clear History, a new movie by HBO.
Technically, David’s Clear History character is entirely separate from his Curb one. For starters, his name here isn’t “Larry David” but Nathan Flomm. For another, Flomm’s a marketing exec who works with Jon Hamm’s character. But the film’s premise — Flomm loses his stake in a startup after a petty argument, only to see the company grow into a billion-dollar corporation — certainly sounds very Curb-y. Watch the new trailer after the jump.

Danny McBride is best known for broad comedic roles, like the jerks he plays in Pineapple Express, Eastbound & Down, and This Is the End. But he does occasionally pop up in subtler, more serious works from time to time, and it sounds like he will again in Cameron Crowe‘s next.
Details on the untitled project remain murky, but it’s widely believed to be a reworked version of Crowe’s long-gestating Deep Tiki. McBride joins a stellar cast that also includes Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, and Rachel McAdams. Hit the jump for more details on the project.

James Franco certainly couldn’t be faulted for lacking in ambition. His most recent directorial effort was an adaptation of William Faulkner‘s As I Lay Dying, a revered American classic with an experimental structure that doesn’t easily lend itself to cinematic translation.
Now, for his next move, he plans to double down on the Faulkner by directing a film based on another of his works, The Sound and the Fury. Franco will star once again, and he hopes to get Jon Hamm, Danny McBride, and little brother Dave Franco to join him. Get the details after the jump.
