Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and 50/50 director reunite for Xmas comedy

Feb. 11, 2014by:

Director Jonathan Levine (THE WACKNESS, WARM BODIES) has a new project in the works, and he's bringing two of his 50/50 buddies with him. THR is reporting Levine will direct an untitled Christmas comedy with Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt set to star. Levine also wrote the screenplay, and it's about, "three childhood best friends who reunite in New York City for their annual tradition of going out on Christmas Eve." The third lead role hasn't been cast yet, but Rogen and Gordon-Levitt will play two of the best friends.

Sony has already picked up the film, and production should start sometime this summer. Studios clearly liked the pitch for the planned movie since others (including Paramount and Universal) were competing for it over the weekend, and it could potentially be a big hit at the box office.

Normally, I could care less about a Christmas movie. There are some I do enjoy, but I'm certainly not one of those people who only watch holiday flicks during the month of December with a candy cane stuck up my ass. However, with these two actors and a damn fine director, I definitely have an interest in this Christmas movie.

No word on when Jonathan Levine's new film will hit theaters, but it'll probably be released in December 2015.

Non-sensical US saying needs correcting

I love you America, but please (starting with you Jesse Giroux), please stop saying "I could care less" to infer that you don't care about something. It is not only incorrect, It doesn't make sense. To articulate this more clearly please watch this 3 minute rant by David Mitchell of 'Peep Show." Very funny.

As an Australian I understand taking the Queen's English and adapting, changing, throwing in slang etc etc… all fine, but "I could care less" is just annoying!!

That's the problem here buddy, you and I speak the Queen's English... They speak AMERICAN.

Just like Mexicans speak Mexican in America rather than speaking Spanish. The land of ignorance to anyone outside their own borders. Stop wasting your breath.

I actually like the idea of the third friend being a girl.

It would also mean a full-on 50/50 reunion. I think Kendrick worked really well with Gordon-Levitt in the film.

50/50 was great so I'm definitely looking forward to this next collaboration. I think James McAvoy would be a good choice for the third best friend.

With this mix, I can see them making a funny Christmas movie. Hope they consider Jay Baruchel as the third friend.

Let's hope that it will be "Christmas Vacation" instead of "Christmas with the Kranks" or something along that line.
