Workaholics: Netflix movie on the way from Comedy Central show crew
The Workaholics guys are headed to Netflix.
Adam DeVine, Anders Holm, Blake Anderson, and Kyle Newacheck, the co-creators and stars of the Comedy Central show, are set for Game Over, Man! The Netflix original feature comes from a story hatched by the four long-time collaborators, with a script by Holm.
Newacheck, who directs on the series and appears as Karl, will direct the project, while Devine, Holm, and Anderson will star. Seth Rogen will serve as a producer, re-teaming with him after all four appeared in Rogen’s 2014 film Neighbors.
Devine took to Twitter to confirm the news, “Ugh oh! Dem boys got a moooovie!”
The title of the film is a reference to Bill Paxton’s famous line in Aliens. While plot details are being kept under wraps, the Hollywood Reporter, which first reported the story, described it in the vein of “Die Hard in a hotel.”
Workaholics has been renewed for a seventh season, which will debut sometime in 2017.
