For those not in the know, Seth Rogen is currently in the midst of production for his apocalypse-themed film dubbed The End of the World. This particular movie is a comedy centered around ‘the end times’ and features quite the cameo roster.
Going into today we already knew that Rogen, James Franco, Emma Watson, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Aziz Ansari, and Jonah Hill would all be appearing in the movie; however, we also knew that the cameo train did not end there.
Recent paparazzi photos have placed a number of other stars at the set of the film including Rihanna, Paul Rudd, Mindy Kalin, Michael Cera, and Jason Segel. To be fair though, the Segel news is not exactly breaking as that bit of information came out weeks ago along with confirmation of Emma Watson’s appearance. This is big news nonetheless that could be enough to pack the theaters on opening night.
On a side note, we are a bit disappointed McLovin (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) is not mentioned in the cameo listings yet considering Michael Cera has just been added. A full Super Bad reunion would have been a nice touch.
Seth Rogen is co-directing this project alongside Evan Goldberg with a June 2013 release being targeted. Stay tuned for more on The End of the World as it develops.
