We’ve been hearing various tidbits about the new Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel comedy, The Apocalypse, and now Box Office Mojo have confirmed the release date for the end-of-the-word comedy as June 14, 2013. Based on Rogen and Baruchel‘s 2007 short Jay and Seth Vs The Apocalypse, the film will seemingly be the flipside of Lars Von Trier‘s uber depressing, but beautiful, Melancholia. This project is also packing some serious comedic talent, with Jonah Hill, James Franco, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson also starring in the film.
This inevitable “end” will also mark the beginning of the directing career of Rogen and his longtime writing and producing partner Evan Goldberg. In a similar comedic/ending of the world vein, Steve Carell and Keira Knightley will be starring in Seeking a Friend for the End of the World out this summer, as well as Chris Matheson‘s Rapturepalooza. As for The Apocalypse, filming is set to begin this spring.
Will you be seeing The Apocalypse come next June?
