You want to know how far the branches of the Judd Apatow tree go? Just look at the cast of “The End Of The World.” Not only does it feature pretty much the regular Apatow players including Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Paul Rudd, Jay Baruchel and Jason Segel, it also features friends and celebs like Michael Cera, Aziz Ansari, Emma Watson and Rihanna. In short, anybody even vaguely related to Apatow’s circle will probably pop up as the movie continues rolling, and speaking of which, the first set pics have landed.
Why so serious? Well, as you might guess from the title, the movie takes place at the end of the world with everyone gathered at James Franco apartment where he’ll be playing himself, naturally. That’s about all we know about the movie based on the popular short “Jay And Seth Vs. The Apocalypse.” Seth Rogen is making his directorial debut alongside his regular collaborator Evan Goldberg, so we’ll see what he’s learned from being in front of the camera, as he goes behind it.
Sony will release the movie next summer on June 14th. Check out the pics below. [Screen Crush]
