Sony Heads Into 'The Apocalypse' (aka 'Jay And Seth Vs The Apocalypse'); With Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg To Direct

Its been nearly five years in the making but things are finally coming together for the full-length feature adaptation of Jay Baruchel and Seth Rogen's viral comedy short "Jay And Seth Vs. The Apocalypse," which featured the two as degenerate roommates living in squalor during an apocalypse.

Soon after the short landed online, Mandate Pictures jumped on board for the full-length version and, since then, things have only evolved further with Jonah Hill, James Franco, Craig Robinson, Danny McBride and Aziz Ansari all confirmed as fellow survivors in what will be Rogen and producing/writing partner Evan Goldberg's directorial debut. The film now looks to have settled on a new title with the previously shortened moniker "The Apocalypse" replaced by "The End Of The World," according to BoxOfficeMojo.

The film's plot itself has changed over time as well with the apocalypse now hitting during a party at Franco's house and we expect more actors/comedians associated with the Apatow Mafia surely showing up. Baruchel also previously noted they plan to have "a lot of famous people in Los Angeles, I want a bunch of cameos, but I just want them to be corpses. I want them to be like 'Oh god there's Will Smith's dead body in the corner!' " 

100 or so minutes of improvised riff-raff between these actors with the apocalypse in the distant background? Sold. A June 14, 2013 theatrical release has already been set for the film.
