Seth Rogen May Say This Mean War

They’re both in demand actors right now, so it’s only logical that the producers of 20th Century Fox’s Reese Witherspoon comedy **This Means War **would be targeting both Seth Rogen and Chris Pine to co-star with her.

McG, probably hoping for less of a rant-filled shoot than he experienced on Terminator Salvation, is behind the camera for the film, which sees a pair of best-friend roommates battle over a woman (Witherspoon) who rents the spare bedroom in their New York apartment.

Thing is, it’s no ordinary squabble, since one of the friends is a secret agent, and the fight starts getting increasingly destructive.

Fox has been trying to wrangle this thing into shape since buying the script back in 1998, and has been through several casting choices looking for the right team. The Wrap reports that James Franco passed and while Bradley Cooper signed on, he then ditched the flick, either for scheduling reasons or because he just didn’t like it.

Role Models co-writer Tim Dowling is trying to get the screenplay sorted and Fox will have it shooting just as soon as a few good leading men can actually be convinced to stay on board.
