This Is The End (formerly Jay and Seth Versus the Apocalypse, aka The End of the World, aka The Apocalypse) is the new title of the directoral debut of frequent collaborators Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. The pair, who co-wrote Superbad, Pineapple Express and more, also co-wrote this apocalyptic comedy about a group of actors who end up hanging at James Franco‘s house during the end of the world. Co-stars, as themselves, include Rogen, Franco, Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill, Aziz Ansari, Rihanna, Paul Rudd, Danny McBride, Emma Watson, Michael Cera, David Krumholtz, Martin Starr, Mindy Kaling, Craig Robinson and others. Some are larger roles, some are cameos but all are super frightened to be witnessing the end of days with their fellow famous friends.
With the Mayan Calendar predicting Friday, December 21 as the possible end of the world, Rogen decided it was a perfect time to release a teaser clip from the film, which is scheduled for release June 14. You know, just in case the end of the world stops us from seeing This Is The End. Check it out below. Read More »

We already know what Larry David‘s new film will be about (a marketing exec who misses out on a lucrative startup) and how it’ll be distributed (on HBO). Now we also know what it’ll be called and who’ll star in it.
According to a new report, the movie’s now going by the name Clear History, and the cast contains a healthy mix of comedians and non-comedians. In addition to David and the previously rumored Jon Hamm and Michael Keaton, the confirmed cast also includes Bill Hader, Danny McBride, Philip Baker Hall, Amy Ryan, Kate Hudson, Eva Mendes, and JB Smoove. More after the jump.

With his Cormac McCarthy adaptation Child of God in post-production, multi-hyphenate James Franco is prepping another literary classic for his next feature. Two winters ago, he was trying to get the William Faulkner estate on board for a movie version of As I Lay Dying. It seems he was successful, as the film’s now begun casting for a fall start. As of this week, Danny McBride, Tim Blake Nelson, Logan Marshall-Green (Prometheus), Jim Parrack (True Blood), and Ahna O’Reilly (The Help) are all lined up to star alongside Franco himself. More details after the jump.

Once upon a time, there were plans for three seasons of the show Eastbound & Down, and three seasons only. That plan came to fruition and the show finished with a third season finale earlier this April. But Eastbound isn’t done, as HBO has ordered eight more episodes of the show. So there will be a few more hours of Kenny Powers and his fashion-forward hair for your enjoyment. (This is the part where fans of canceled series like Bored to Death and Deadwood get irritated, however.) Read More »

HBO’s Eastbound and Down will conclude its third and final season this weekend, but star Danny McBride‘s love affair with dark comedy lives on. McBride is set to write, produce, and star in Clown, Warner Bros.’ remake of the Danish film Klovn. Todd Phillips is lined up to produce, which seems all too appropriate given that Klovn has been widely compared to Phillips’ The Hangover. Also producing will be Casper Christensen and Frank Hvam, who created the original sitcom on which the film was based. More details after the jump.
