THIS IS THE END
SETH ROGEN & EVAN GOLDBERG (Directors/Writers/Producers) make their directorial debut with This Is The End. Rogen and Goldberg grew up together in Vancouver and wrote their first screenplay, Superbad, at the tender age of 15. The film, which the pair also executive produced, was released in the summer of 2007 and opened to overwhelming critical praise and commercial success, earning over $120 million at the domestic box office.
The dynamic duo followed up the success of Superbad with the action-comedy Pineapple Express, which they also co-wrote and executive produced. The film starred Seth Rogen and James Franco and was directed by David Gordon Green.
Goldberg and Rogen recently produced 50/50 and The Guilt Trip. They served as executive producers on the smash hit Knocked Up. Written and directed by Judd Apatow with stars Rogen, Katherine Heigl, Leslie Mann and Paul Rudd, Knocked Up tallied more than $148 million in domestic box-office receipts. Most recently, Goldberg and Rogen also wrote and executive produced The Green Hornet, an action film directed by Michel Gondry that took in over $225 million worldwide, and Judd Apatow's Funny People.
Goldberg also collaborated with Jay Baruchel on the screenplay for Goon.
For the small screen, Goldberg and Rogen penned an episode of "The Simpsons" that aired in 2009, "Homer the Whopper."
Goldberg began his career as a writer on Sacha Baron Cohen's cult favorite "Da Ali G Show," which aired on HBO. As part of the writing crew on that show, Rogen and Goldberg earned Emmy nominations. The series spun off the hit comedy feature Borat and Cohen's follow-up, Bruno.
