It's been quite a while since we last heard of Jay Baruchel's and Seth Rogen's "Jay and Seth vs the Apocalypse," the low-budget trailer that was made in order to build interest for a full feature film. [watch trailer below]
MTV News now caught up with Baruchel, who said that Mandate Pictures secured the rights to "Apocalypse" and started making plans to bring it to the big screen.
"They're working on the ['Apocalypse'] script right now," he said. "All the concepts are there, all the beats are there, the treatment is there and a movie with us in it — we'll improvise half the thing anyway. [It] will at the very least happen in the next year and a half for sure."
He added that Rogen is currently working on "The Green Hornet," which is taking up the majority of his time. But even when "Hornet" is complete, there might be another picture that might take precedence over "Apocalypse." "The minute ['Hornet'] is finished, we go into production on one of two things," Baruchel explained. "We'll either do 'Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse' or we'll do this hockey movie that Evan [Goldberg] and I wrote called; 'The Goon.'"
"We're putting the cast together [for Goon'] as I speak," Baruchel continued. "It's a Canadian hockey movie. Whichever one is closer to going, we'll do."
