Judd Apatow is reuniting with his The 40 Year Old Virgin star Seth Rogen for the comedy Super Bad at Columbia Pictures. Apatow is producing the high school-themed film, while Rogen is penning the screenplay with Evan Goldberg and will co-star.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that Greg Mottola (The Daytrippers), who directed several episodes of Apatow's short-lived TV series Undeclared, will helm Super Bad, with Apatow regular Jonah Hill and Michael Cera on board to star. Saturday Night Live's Bill Hader is in talks to co-star.
The story revolves around two co-dependent high school seniors (Hill and Cera) who set out to score alcohol for a party, believing that girls will then hook up with them and they will be ready for college. But as the night grows more chaotic, overcoming their separation anxiety becomes a greater challenge than getting the girls.
