Comedian, actor and filmmaker Seth Rogen has talked about his next “great action movie” Escape, which uses physical comedy for his laughs.
Seth Rogen provided details on Escape, his great action movie five years in the making. The comedian, actor and filmmaker has never rested on his laurels, and today, some 14 years after his first lead role in Judd Apatow. Pregnant, Rogen is widely known for a variety of movies and television shows.
Arguably one of the most exciting things about the 39-year-old star is his continued willingness to push the boundaries of comedy. Seemingly not content with creating comedies traditionally, Rogen has repeatedly taken risks that have paid off. His desire to take a humorous look at cancer, for example, was a tremendous challenge that ultimately resulted in 2011. 50/50. The same could be said for Rogen’s other unorthodox comedies. This is the end focused on how Hollywood’s biggest celebrities would react to an apocalyptic scenario. At the same time, Sausage party It took the familiar concept of an animated food movie and made it a very unfamiliar and fun feature. Of course, there have been missteps along the way, but Rogen never seems put off by experimentation.
Most recently, while talking to The New York Times, Rogen gave an idea of his latest project, Escape. Once again, Rogen’s comical pushing boundaries will be on display, this time in “a great action movieWhich is heavily inspired by the Jackie Chan and Buster Keaton movies. Action comedy isn’t a new or unique concept, but with film-making partner Evan Goldberg, Rogen has decided to focus on comic elements that don’t necessarily rely on dialogue. Goldberg and Rogen have been compiling notes on the proposed project since at least 2016:
In ‘Pineapple Express’, the scenes that people remember are the fights, the foot through the windshield and, like in ‘Neighbors’, you think of the air bags; We thought, ‘Why is it just the support stuff? Why are those, in the midst of a sea of talking jokes, these things that pop up from time to time? Why don’t we make a lot of these jokes and rely on verbal humor?
Rogen explains some of the notes that he and Goldberg have already compiled for Escape they have a storyboard. After working with a professional illustrator, Rogen confirms that each shot will receive the same treatment. At present, there does not appear to be a specific timeline for Escape, but it seems to be a project that really excites Rogen. Physical comedy has had a place in many of Rogen’s films, but it has never been something that he or Goldberg have previously built a full story on. It’s something few modern movies except the 2011 Oscar winner The artist – I’ve even bothered to try.
After years of being known for some of the best stoner comedies, it’s exciting to see Rogen continue to evolve comically. The concept behind Escape sounds interesting, especially if they can meet the challenge of limited dialogue. Certainly, there is a great deal of risk involved in doing a project like this, especially if the physical comedy is ultimately not enough for the audience. But when push comes to shove, Rogen and Goldberg have repeatedly shown that they can find fun in just about anything.
