Jay & Seth vs The Apocalypse

Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse, was an Internet short scripted by Seth Rogen and his writing partner Evan Goldberg (“Superbad”) and co-starring Jay Baruchel. The idea was to put the so-called trailer online and build interest for a feature film (the trailer is below)

It looks as if the idea worked as Mandate Pictures secured the rights and started making plans to bring “Jay and Seth” to the big screen in January last year.

MTV News spoke with Baruchel on the set of The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and asked him for an update

“They’re working on the ['Jay and Seth'] script right now,” said Baruchel. “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, so it doesn’t matter.”

“‘Jay and Seth’ will at the very least happen in the next year and a half for sure,” he added. “Seth and Evan are working on The Green Hornet right now, and that’s just a big, massive undertaking that’s taking up all their time and effort."

“The minute [‘Hornet’] is finished, we go into production on one of two things,” Baruchel said. “We’ll either do ‘Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse’ or we’ll do this hockey movie that Evan and I wrote called ‘The Goon.’”

Jay & Seth sounds and looks like it could be quite a cool comedy. It's about two friends stuck together in an apartment after the end of the world.

When the Green Hornet is complete what film do you want them to work on next - The Goon of Jay & Seth?
