FROM Seth Rogen
Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg John Horn of the Los Angeles Times talks with long-time collaborators Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. The two started writing together as 13-year-old boys in Vancouver, Canada, where they dreamed up the story for what was to become their biggest hit film, the 2007 Superbad. Now they have a number of movies under their belt as writers and producers including the cancer comedy, 50-50, and the failed superhero movie, The Green Hornet. They talk with Horn about making their directorial debut, This Is the End , how they got some raunchy comedy past the MPAA ratings board and how how they learned they need to make R-rated movies on small budgets. x
