22 Jump Street writer Rodney Rothman has gathered an impressive cast for his directorial debut, a space comedy entitled The Something, which has been in the works for quite some time. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Seth Rogen, Zach Galifianakis and Bill Hader have all been set to star. While it isn't known when production will get under way, it seems this project is finally coming together.
We first reported on The Something way back in February 2010, when Universal Pictures preemptively picked up Rodney Rothman's pitch. At the time, the project was described as an ensemble horror/comedy hybrid set in deep space, which was being compared to Zombieland. The story centers on a crew of male astronauts who have been stranded in outer space for years, when they finally come across another ship. Deadline adds that both of these crews hate each other, but they have to find a way to work together.Read More
Just one month after Michael Cera signed on to provide the voice for Batman's sidekick Robin, The LEGO Batman Movie has found its main villain. Variety reports that Zach Galifianakis is in talks to voice The Joker in this animated adventure. Will Arnett reprises his role from last year's blockbuster The Lego Movie as The Dark Knight.
No specific plot details have been released yet, but producer Chris Miller said in November that this animated superhero movie will span every era of Batman filmmaking. With that being said, it's certainly possible that practically every Batman villain could be featured in this animated spinoff. It isn't known what other classic Batman characters are being eyed for The LEGO Batman Movie, but there certainly are plenty to choose from.Read More
