Seth Rogen to join Disney’s ‘The B Team’

He is said to be producing, and possibly starring in the new comedy flick

Seth Rogen has been revealed as a producer and possible star of the new Disney spy spoof film The B Team.

While the project is still in its very early stages, the plot centers on the kidnapping of a top secret agent, whose back-up tech support team must rescue him.

Disney began working on the comedy three years ago, after the idea was first pitched to Charles Segars’ Sparkler Entertainment by Derek Guiley and David Schneiderman, who had previously written the screenplay for the 2004 film Chasing Liberty.


Variety reports that Segars has also been selected to help produce the film, with Ilan Breil set to serve as executice producer.

Rogen previously both produced and starred in the Golden Globe-nominated film 50/50, and has served as executive producer for several of his other films, including Superbad, Knocked Up and The Green Hornet.

The actor is also said to be directing his first movie, with the forthcoming adaptation of his short 2007 film Jay And Seth Vs. The Apocalypse, which also featured his Knocked Up co-star Jay Baruchel.
