Mandate Pictures is turning a short Internet trailer Seth Rogen did with his friends on the end of the world into a feature film.

Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse will star Rogen and Jay Baruchel and be written and produced by Rogen and his writing partner Evan Goldberg.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the story revolves around two guys who, with the end the world unfolding and the planet invaded by monsters, are ready to kill each other after being cooped up together for too long.

Goldberg and Jason Stone came up with the story, adding into the mix Rogen and Baruchel, pals and fellow Canadians since their Undeclared days. Stone directed a short trailer for it last year in the hopes that the concept could one day be turned into a movie. (A short film is currently in post.)
