Seth Rogen Joins The B Team
Developing spy comedy at Disney

Seth Rogen Joins The B Team

There was a time when The B Team was a cop comedy starring Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, before a certain A-Team caused a name-switch to The Other Guys. But with The Other Guys now come and gone, and The A-Team a distant, tank-flying memory, The B Team is back, this time in the form of a spy spoof being developed by Seth Rogen. It just goes to show you can't keep a good name down. Or something.

This project actually pre-dates those others, and its title was presumably in flux there for a while. Development being as slow as it is though, it's fair game again. The story in this case is about a "top secret-agent" who gets kidnapped and has to be rescued by his back-up gang of researchers and techies, who presumably aren't quite as "top" as he is.

The original pitch to the studio was by Derek Guiley and David Schneiderman, whose last produced screenplay was Chasing Liberty back in 2004. Rogen has come aboard as a producer at this stage, but may have his eye on a starring role as well. There's no mention of his usual cohort Evan Goldberg being involved at the moment, but we're sure it's only a matter of time.

The B Team is still at the coming-together stage at the moment, with no start-date on the cards. Which is fine, because Rogen very much needs to give his complete attention to Jay And Seth Vs. The Apocalypse. Last we heard, that one's due before the cameras in February.
