Seth Rogen offers “The Apocalypse” update: “It’s looking good”


Posted by on

Fans who have been following the progress of Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel’s short “Jay and Seth vs. The Apocalypse” making its way to the big screen over the past five years got treated with great news earlier this month. Apparently Sony is in negotiations to finance and distribute the upcoming horror comedy with a speculative 2013 release date, though no exact date has been set. The feature-length film has been in pre-production since Mandate came on board to produce it in 2008, and now is finally getting the forward momentum it needs to begin filming within the year.

IFC caught up with Rogen at his Hilarity for Charity event, which raised money for the Alzheimer’s Association, and asked for a status update on “The Apocalypse.” Ultimately he didn’t have too much to add to The Hollywood Reporter‘s recent news story.

“We’re kind of in like the final stages of putting everything together and I don’t want to jinx it but it’s looking good,” he said about the film’s progress.

The short — which can be viewed here –- starred just Baruchel and Rogen, but “The Apocalypse” has expanded the cast a bit. James Franco, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson have been reported to be playing versions of themselves in the flick, and Rogen clarified that they won’t just be in it for quick cameos.

“They’re like the main characters in the movie,” he said. “I’m really excited to work with those guys honestly. I don’t get to see them that often and I think when we’re working together is kind of when you see them the most. On top of making a good movie, I hope I just get to hang out with them also.”

“The Apocalypse” will be Rogen’s directorial debut. If the deal with Sony comes together, it is set to go into production in the spring.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
