With Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse on the horizon, word has come down from Indie Wire that Seth Rogen will be teaming up with Super Bad buddy Evan Goldberg to possibly write a horror movie.
According to The Playlist, “a desire to take on new territory… has led Goldberg to one of his next endeavors — writing a full-on, straight-ahead horror movie. ‘Seth [Rogen] and I have been talking about doing a horror idea that we came up with, and I don’t like horror movies. It’s interesting to me that I don’t like horror movies and I’m interested in doing it,’ Goldberg revealed. ‘I used to just think, “Anyone who likes horror movies is sick or [more] likely to kill me in my sleep than my friends who like comedy.” But movies are therapy for a lot of people, and it’s good for people to get things out. Maybe there would be more serial killers because they get it out with the horror movies, or maybe it makes people serial killers, I don’t really know. But I’m interested in this whole area now, and I never really was before.'”
“And while Goldberg is keeping further details close to the chest for now, he does cite one recent franchise for spurring his curiosity, and he hints that comedy could possibly find its way into the story. ‘We do assume that by making it funnier, we can make it scarier, but people don’t love Paranormal Activity because it’s funny,’ he said. ‘If it was a bit funnier, and more realistic, maybe it would’ve been even better — and I did think it was a fantastic movie, I actually really liked that movie. That was the one that kinda drew us into discussing this, because we just thought it was so innovative.'”
