Zach Galifianakis, Bill Hader, and Seth Rogen set for R-rated space comedy
The Martian proved space can be funny — at least according to the Golden Globes! — so it’s time to call in the professionals. Universal Pictures announced that they will release an R-rated space comedy starring Zach Galifianakis, Bill Hader, and Seth Rogen on May 26, 2017.
The comedy trio will be playing astronauts who discover a mysterious alien object in space, forcing them to compete in a battle of intelligent life as the representatives for the human race.
The as-yet untitled project will be the directorial debut of writer and producer Rodney Rothman, who recently wrote 22 Jump Street (which featured Hader and Rogen in uncredited roles). The film will be produced by Rothman and Point Grey Pictures, Rogen’s production company with partner Evan Goldberg.
