The cast of Townies is growing into a bit of a Superbad reunion, with Deadline reporting that Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Dave Franco have both joined Seth Rogen in the comedy Townies. They’ll star alongside Zac Efron and Rose Byrne in the movie.
Rogen will play a man who lives close to a fraternity house, which is led by the raucous Efron, and reaches a breaking point with their wild antics. Byrne is set to play the man’s wife, who’s the sensible adult in the relationship.
Franco will be the vice president of the fraternity, who’s also Efron’s best friend. Deadline doesn’t say who Mintz-Plasse will be – so he could be either on the fraternity’s side or Rogen’s.
Andrew J. Cohen and Brendan O’Brien wrote the script, with Nicholas Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) set to direct. There’s no news on when it might shoot, but with the cast growing, it probably won’t be too long.
