Seth Rogen spent 2019 at the top of the box office for his work on Lion King and Good Boys. Now the Canadian celeb is taking on the role of producer again on an upcoming film. Seth Rogen’s horror film Memetic is so different from his past projects.
Based on the graphic novel by Boom! Studios, the film will follow a viral meme that invades more than just student humour on a college campus. Anyone who sets an eye on the meme becomes violent.
A group of unaffected students, including the main character Aaron who is immune to the meme, must band together to try and stop the epidemic ensuing at their school.
Really excited to announce that @JamesTheFourth and I's MEMETIC will be a feature film!!! @mattsontomlin… https://t.co/UrZO0bDBHH
Vulture also revealed that the meme in question is called the “Good Time Sloth” and describes its impact as “society’s downfall.”
According to Deadline, Rogen’s production company, Point Grey, will be working with Boom! Studios and distributor Lionsgate to create the film.
Also joining them will be script-writer Mattson Tomlin, who as his IMDb states, was also a writer on the film The Batman.
This film comes after Point Grey’s success with Good Boys that featured Rogen as an actor, producer, and writer.
In an article written by Deadline, it was said that the comedy grossed over $110 million at Universal during its theatre release. It also became the first R-rated comedy to top the box office in three years.
Aside from the newly announced film, It was announced by Deadline that Point Grey is involved in producing DreamWorks and MGM’s Where’s Waldo that’s set to start production sometime this year.
There has yet to be any news on a release date or potential cast list for Memetic.

Owners of a Toronto bar are asking for help from their community following a string of recent break-ins.
Triple A Bar, located at 138 Adelaide St. E., launched a GoFundMe this week after reportedly being broken into for the third time.
The popular location took to Instagram on Wednesday to show the broken windows, doors, and other damages that the building had endured.
The fundraiser, which has already raised over $5,000, aims to help the restaurant get back on its feet after a difficult year.
"After this last break in (and hopefully it will be the last - this is our third) we had many reach out to see how we are, offering help, and some had even suggested starting one of these for us," an excerpt from the GoFundMe reads. "We are not sure what the future holds, but we are optimistic and are trying to hold on."
Driscoll's version, which is hilariously titled "Ontario, Let Me Go (Play Golf)," has already racked up over 136,000 views on YouTube.
"Not being able to golf, and just the frustration over the lockdowns and COVID this past year, I thought it might cheer myself and others up to have a funny song about letting us golf," he told Narcity when asked about the inspiration behind the cover.
"I just thought it would bounce around between friends and family. I had no idea it would blow up like this...must be a lot of golfers in Ontario," he added.
Referencing Joey's character having changed his lifestyle following a pay raise, Victoria warns that "lifestyle creep can ruin you" and that "the reality is, if you don't know what to do with it, your money can go as fast as it came."
When discussing the character Ross comically bringing a couch upstairs without the aid of professional movers, Victoria points out that "getting help from the right professionals is not an expense, it's an investment."
