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.
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 »

Neighbors is now in theaters, and based on the box office receipts, it could end up being one of the biggest surprises of the summer. It’s not that big of a surprise after you see it, though, because the movie is just so damn funny.
When we spoke with director Nicholas Stoller a few weeks back, we had to ask him about five specific jokes in the movie. So as not to spoil them for you, we held the quotes until today, after the film’s opening weekend.
But below, you can read the Neighbors behind the scenes stories of the Christian Bale/Michael Keaton Batman joke, the “Bros Before Hos” rants, the crazy soundtrack, the Robert De Niro party and the cameo filled flashback sequence. Read More »
A couple months ago James Franco optioned rights to Greg Sestero‘s book The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside the Room, about the making of Tommy Wiseau‘s masterpiece of bad cinema, The Room. At that point Franco was set as producer and director, and roped in Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg to produce alongside him. But it always seemed like Franco had to end up playing Wiseau, too. Now Seth Rogen says that is indeed the plan. Read More »
Over the past decade, few actors have had quite the impact on Hollywood as Seth Rogen. The writer, actor, producer and now director has quietly become the comedic voice of this generation, much like Adam Sandler, Eddie Murphy or Bill Murray before him. Rogen’s everyman demeanor and total commitment to embarrassment has become something of a benchmark in modern comedy. Unlike those other comedy icons, however, Rogen is more than just an actor. He got his start writing comedy and continues to write and produce films. He has now proven himself as a director, too. Like his mentor Judd Apatow, Rogen is shaping the laughter of the world.
Rogen’s latest film, Neighbors, is sure to add to that legacy. Directed by Nicholas Stoller, the hard-R film tells the story of a new parents (played by Rogen and Rose Byrne) who fall into a major feud with their fraternity house neighbors, lead by Zac Efron. The film is filled with the kind of big laughs and big heart you’d expect from Rogen.
Recently, we spoke to Rogen about Neighbors, and also touched on his views on his comedy legacy, and the fact he’s making the kind of mid-budget films many in Hollywood see as non-existent. The conversation also ranged through upcoming projects, Zac Efron, female empowerment in the movies, and more. Read our Seth Rogen Neighbors interview below. Read More »
