NEIGHBORS

Production Information
SETH ROGEN (This Is the End, 50/50), ZAC EFRON (The Lucky One, That Awkward Moment) and ROSE BYRNE (Bridesmaids, Insidious series) join forces with director NICHOLAS STOLLER (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek) for Neighbors, a comedy about a young couple suffering from arrested development who are forced to live next to a fraternity house after the birth of their newborn baby.

By all appearances, new parents Mac (Rogen) and Kelly Radner (Byrne) are living the American Dream, one complete with an adorable little girl and a beautiful new starter home in the suburbs. Still, the early-thirtysomethings want to believe that they have a modicum of coolness left within them. This next phase of life is proving to be a challenge, as the reformed (sometime?) partyers struggle with the realities of entering an inevitable new stage: unapologetic adulthood.

When Mac and Kelly discover that their new next-door neighbors are none other than dozens of Delta Psi Beta fraternity brothers-led by charismatic president Teddy Sanders (Efron)-they try to play along and make the best of an awkward situation. But when the frat's parties grow increasingly more epic, both sides of the property line begin to fend for their turf. As the neighbors' relentless sabotage and one-upmanship threaten to either get the college kids kicked off the block or make the newlyweds lose what's left of their sanity, thus begins an epic Greek war for the ages.

Neighbors includes a comedic supporting cast led by DAVE FRANCO (21 Jump Street, Now You See Me) as Pete, Delta Psi's charming vice president; CHRISTOPHER MINTZ-PLASSE (This Is the End, Role Models) as Scoonie, the most freakishly endowed of the brothers; JERROD CARMICHAEL (television's The Goodwin Games, upcoming Untitled Jerrod Carmichael Project) as the easily confused Garf; and CRAIG ROBERTS (Submarine, Jane Eyre) as the disturbingly nicknamed Assjuice.

On the "adult" side of the fence are IKE BARINHOLTZ (TV's The Mindy Project and The League) as Jimmy, Mac's immature best friend and co-worker who is pining for the spouse from whom he's divorced; CARLA GALLO (Superbad, TV's Bones) as Paula, Jimmy's wild-partying ex-wife who longs for the time when Mac and Kelly were the hip couple that she met; and LISA KUDROW (TV's Scandal, Easy A) as Dr. Carol Gladstone, the dean of the local university who is at her wit's end with the one-more-strike-and-you're-out frat.

Working from an original screenplay by first-time screenwriters ANDREW JAY COHEN and BRENDAN O'BRIEN, who also serve as executive producers, Stoller directs the comedy produced by Rogen, as well as Rogen's longtime producing partner, EVAN GOLDBERG (Superbad, This Is the End), and JAMES WEAVER (The Guilt Trip, This Is the End).

For Neighbors, the filmmakers have assembled an accomplished behind-the-scenes team led by cinematographer BRANDON TROST (This Is the End, That Awkward Moment), production designer JULIE BERGHOFF (The Kids Are All Right, The Conjuring), editor ZENE BAKER (This Is the End, 50/50), costume designer LEESA EVANS (Bridesmaids, This Is 40) and composer MICHAEL ANDREWS (The Heat, upcoming Tammy). NATHAN KAHANE (This Is the End), JOE DRAKE (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) and BRIAN BELL (upcoming 22 Jump Street) serve alongside Cohen and O'Brien as executive producers of the comedy.
