Space, the final frontier. The Hollywood space craze is in full force with films like Interstellar, Star Trek, Gravity, Star Wars, and The Martian topping the box office in 2015. So Why can’t we get ourselves a funny version of those space odysseys. Well looks like we are getting our wish. According to THR we are not only getting our space comedy, but we are getting it with the heavy hitters.
It has been reported that a new Space epic starring Bill Hader, Seth Rogen, and Zac Galifianakis called The Something, which will follow a group of astronauts which after spending years in space, come across another ship. The project will i written by 22 Jump Street co writer Rodney Rothman, who will also make his directorial debut with the project.
The Something, based on nothing but the casting, is already the funniest film of 2017. The three comedy giants are all proven commodities in Hollywood, especially with Rogen coming off of The Night Before, and Hader with Trainwreck. The premise sounds enticing, and even without a true synopsis, this is still a project that induces shear excitement from any comedy lover. It will be interesting to see how Rothman will fair in his directorial debut, though the script appears to be in good hands with him as 22 Jump Street was hilarious. Being produced by Seth Rogen’s company is just the cherry on top as they have produced a string of hits, so they clearly know how to find good features.
