I've been getting excited for this. Has the potential to be fucking hysterical.

This script is unbearably funny. Along with 30 Minutes Or Less, hands down the funniest 2010/2011 screenplay I've had the pleasure of reading. With Akiva directing, there's no way this isn't spectacular.

They did a pretty sizable re-write, which I haven't read. The original was so, so brilliant on its own, so hopefully this doesn't turn into a 'wasn't broken, but got fixed' scenario. That could be the one downfall.

Is there any sort of action or sci-fi elements in the script? I mean I realize it's a comedy, but anything more?

Oh, yeah. The second half turns into a very well-balanced sci-fi comedy with a few brief action scenes. I can hunt down the script and PM it to you (or whoever's interested) if you'd like. I highly doubt the Rogen/Goldberg draft is floating around, but like I said, the original is still just great.

Yeah man, I would love to get my hands on it. Thanks.

Sounds awesome. Fucking great that Akiva is directing



did they just shit up the movie or did you actually enjoy it?



i'd like that if you don't mind
I fucking adored 30 Minutes Or Less. Very raucous, very in your face, perfectly paced action-comedy. 86 minutes is a great length for that kind of flick, and the main parts were written for the people who were cast, so it couldn't have worked out any better. Everything I could've asked for and more.

And I'm working finding the script, I'll hit everyone up once I find it.

I really have trouble tolerating Vince Vaughn these days but I'll give it a shot.
