Jay Baruchel is best known for his acting roles — his respectably diverse resume includes turns in How to Train Your Dragon, Tropic Thunder, Almost Famous and Judd Apatow’s brilliant-but-cancelled Undeclared — but pretty soon, we’ll know him as a screenwriter, too.
Baruchel had his first feature screenwriting credit with the upcoming hockey comedy Goon, which he co-wrote with Superbad scribe Evan Goldberg. Now, Baruchel has signed on for two more writing projects: the comic book adaptation Random Acts of Violence, and a rewrite of Exorcism Diaries, based on Mark Opsasnick‘s The Real Story Behind The Exorcist. Baruchel will be collaborating on both projects with writing partner Jesse Chabot. Read more after the jump.
