Seth Rogen to star in a spy comedy for Disney?

12.23.2011

Seth Rogen's last foray into the action-comedy, THE GREEN HORNET, didn't exactly go over very well. It was a noble effort, I suppose, but in the end, misguided. But Rogen is ready to give it another shot with the Disney action-spy-comedy THE B TEAM.

THE B TEAM, which was coincidentally the original title for THE OTHER GUYS, would follow what happens when a world class spy (think James Bond) is kidnapped, leaving his tech support team (led by Rogen) to rescue him. It's a halfway decent concept, especially since Rogen plays "bumbling" so well.

Rogen will be producing the film and supervising a rewrite on a script written three years ago by Derek Guiley and David Schneiderman.

Though he's allegedly directing THE APOCALYPSE in early 2012 with friends Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill and James Franco, Rogen has been stretching his wings lately starring in the dramedy MY MOTHER'S CURSE with Barbra Streisand and the romantic drama TAKE THIS WALTZ for director Sarah Polley. Rogen is currently set to host the Independent Spirit Awards next month.

And starting yesterday, you can now officially follow Rogen on Twitter.

People dump all over Rogen but the guy takes real chances (Observe and Report) and even his bad movies make money (over $90MM domestic box offic for Hornet) so I'd say cut the guy some slack and don't judge a movie until it's released.

Not against Rogen, just rather he'd write and not act

I really don't like spy comedies. It just doesn't work for me. The villain is always superserious and he gets thwarted by a bumbling idiot.
SPOILER ALERT: the best man in the agency is actually a bad guy

I can't think of a time...

that I wasn't annoyed by Rogen. Zach and Miri, I'll give him that. I enjoyed him in that. But with the exception of Fanboys, he's the same guy in every movie. I love weed, but the pothead persona gets old. EDIT: I think he'd make a great psychopath. PUT THAT MAN IN A HORROR FLICK! I think it'd work.

This I dont understand..if you liked him in Zach and Miri I have no idea why you wouldnt like any of his other flicks cause just like you said hes the same guy in every movie. I happen to enjoy his flicks. Some are good and some are bad but I still enjoy them.

Sounds like a good role for Rogen. But I am tired of suave, charming spies. Yes, there have been some, but it's the exception to the rule, I imagine. And...I was about to launch into a whole other tangent when I remembered Disney is producing this. Hey, money in the man's pocket. Good luck!

Dont get all the hate for Rogen..

:(

Seth Rogen will eventually go the way of Kevin Smith. Bitter and angry because nobody likes his movies. The more failures he has, the less we'll see of him in the long run.

Seth Rogen has been around for about 7 years now and I still can't decide if he's funny or just surrounds himself with funny people.
