Sci-fi comedies don’t have a great track record at the box office, but Zach Galifianakis, Seth Rogen and Bill Hader aren’t going to let that put them off, as THR reports that they’re all set to star in The Something. Unfortunately though there’s not too much info on the movie.
All we know is that it ‘follows a group of male astronauts, who, after being stuck in space for years, come upon another ship.’ The script comes from Rodney Rothman, who also wrote the likes of 22 Jump Street and Grudge Match. He wll also make his directorial debut with the film.
Don’t be surprised if the rather ‘blah’ title changes, but hopefully the talent involved means the script itself is a good one. Universal is backing the movie, which is also a good sign, as Hollywood is usually wary of space-set sci-fi comedies unless they have reason to believe such a potentially pricy project will be worth it.
