Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen are set to star in the comedy “Flarsky” from filmmaker Jonathan Levine (“The Night Before,” “50/50”) for Point Grey Pictures, Denver and Delilah Films and Good Universe.
Veteran comedy scribe Dan Sterling penned the film in which Rogen will play an unemployed journalist, battered by his own misfortune and self-destructive ways.
He endeavors to pursue Theron’s character who was his childhood crush and babysitter. There’s just one problem – she now happens to be one of the most powerful and unattainable women on Earth.
Rogen, Theron, Evan Goldberg, Beth Kono, A.J. Dix and James Weaver will produce. Filming is slated to begin in August.
The news comes shortly after Theron signed on to produce and star in the spy thriller “Need to Know” for Universal Pictures earlier this week.
