Nestled in among all the family-friendly holiday releases and prestigious Oscar hopefuls this Christmas will be The Interview, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg‘s follow-up to This Is the End. Rogen does double duty as one of the film’s leads, a TV producer named Aaron Rapoport who runs a popular celebrity tabloid TV show starring the charismatic Dave Skylark (James Franco).
In an attempt to get ambitious, the pair score a rare interview with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un (Randall Park) — and then quickly find themselves way in over their heads when they’re recruited by CIA agent Lacey (Lizzy Caplan) to take him out. And she doesn’t mean for drinks. Or to dinner. Watch The Interview red band (NSFW) trailer after the jump.

In 2014, when any film has a massive opening weekend, almost immediately the studio starts thinking sequel. Heck, they even think that when a film doesn’t have a huge opening weekend. But in the case of Neighbors, a small, $18 million studio film that had a $50 million opening leading to $200 million worldwide gross, the success came as a bit of a surprise. Still, sequel talks quickly began.
Star and producer Seth Rogen recently discussed this, saying he and Evan Goldberg have had meetings about a potential sequel, but nothing is happening just yet. Read more about a Neighbors sequel below. Read More »

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.

Brooklyn Castle is being turned into a narrative feature, courtesy of Seth Rogen and his 50/50 team. His Point Grey has set up an adaptation of the junior high chess documentary at Sony, with 50/50 helmer Jonathan Levine and 50/50 scribe Will Reiser on board.
Directed by Katie Dellamaggiore, the original film centered on the adolescent chess whizzes of I.S. 318. Though the kids’ triumph would’ve been admirable in any context, it was made even more so by the fact that they hailed from Intermediate School 318 — a poor inner-city school in Brooklyn where about two-thirds of the students live below the federal poverty line. Hit the jump for more details on the project.
