Seth Rogen’s Next 8 Movies Prove He’s Way More Than Just One Sausage Party

All-round good human Seth Rogen has been making rounds on the Hollywood circuit for almost two decades now, starting off in ’90s cult series Freaks and Geeks and most recently voicing a sausage in a movie he wrote, produced and directed called Sausage Party.

Over the years, via appearing in a few small projects you might have heard of such as Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Superbad and This Is the End, Rogen has truly become synonymous with the comedy genre. Add this to the fact he looks like he’d literally give the best bear hug on the planet, runs his own charity, and well, a bunch of other stuff, there are plenty of reasons to love the guy.

And, because we knew that already, we’ve delved into the depths of his IMDb page so you can keep track of all the goodies he’ll throw in your face over the next few years.

1. Zeroville


  • Character: Viking Man
  • Who else stars? James & Dave Franco, Megan Fox, Will Ferrell
  • What’s it about? A film obsessed newcomer arrives in LA and is promptly mistaken for a perpetrator of the Charles Manson murders.
  • Why you should watch: Rogen plays a cigar-chuffing surf hippie who helps a bald James Franco mince around Hollywood. Done.
  • Release date: 2016

2. The Masterpiece


  • Character: Sandy Schklair
  • Who else stars? Dave Franco, Alison Brie, Zac Efron, James Franco
  • What’s it about? It’s a behind-the-scenes look at Tommy Wiseau’s beyond terrible (read: beyond amazing) box office bust, The Room. Few movies have been as awful as this flick; characters are introduced, then instantly disappear. Idioms that make zero sense — “Keep your stupid comments in your pocket!” — are thrown around like wild hobbits, and don’t get me started on the sex scenes.
  • Why you should watch: See above.
  • Release date: 2016
  • Additional info: Rogen also produces.

3. The Something

  • Who else stars? Bill Hader, Zach Galifianakis
  • What’s it about? A bunch of astronauts who’ve been stuck in space for an age come across another ship.
  • Why you should watch: Rodney Rothman, the script writer for 22 Jump Street and Grudge Match is behind the project and you’ll probably get to see Seth Rogen in an astronaut costume.
  • Release date: May 26, 2017
  • Additional information: Rogen also produces.

4. B.O.O.: Bureau Of Otherworldly Operations

  • Character: Jackson Moss
  • Who else stars? Melissa McCarthy, Matt Bomer, Bill Murray
  • What’s it about? It’s a DreamWorks flick about good ghosts taking down bad ghosts. The good ghosts work for an agency called B.O.O. —punny acronyms? Check! — who operate to protect humans from evil hauntings. All is ticking over swimmingly until they uncover a spooky ghost army looking to take down humanity.
  • Why you should watch: It’ll keep you in good spirits (har).
  • Release date: TBD

Though these might be the only upcoming movies that star Rogen, there are plenty of other ways to get your Seth-style kicks — he’s directing and producing FOUR other projects! Isn’t he good to you? Give him a hug.

5. Console Wars


  • Position: Writer, Producer and Director
  • Who else is involved? Evan Goldberg (Rogen’s Preacher co-pilot)
  • What’s it about? It’s a documentary looking at the rivalry between SEGA and Nintendo, based on Blake Harris’s book of the same name.
  • Why you should watch: Interesting insight into the gaming industry — personally, I’m hoping for The King of Kong vibes.
  • Release date: TBD

6. Brooklyn Castle

  • Position: Producer
  • Who else is involved: Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies, 50/50)
  • What’s it about? Adapting the acclaimed 2012 documentary Brooklyn Castle — trailer above — into a feature film, the story centers around students from a poor inner-city school in Brooklyn (where at the time at least approximately two-thirds of the students lived beneath the federal poverty line) who go on to dominate a chess championship.
  • Why you should watch: If the documentary is anything to go by, those feels are going to role in hard.
  • Release date: TBD

7. Future Man

Seth Rogen in 'The Night Before'

Seth Rogen in ‘The Night Before’
  • Position: Director and Producer
  • Who else is involved? Glenne Headly, Josh Hutcherson, Haley Joel Osment
  • What’s it about? Video games again! Future Man is a project for the streaming service Hulu and follows a janitor (Hutcherson) who’s only good at playing one video game — a skill that unsurprisingly does not render him equipped to save humanity.
  • Why you should watch: If you too spend your days glued before a screen, Future Man might provide some handy pointers you might need for the future, man.
  • Release date: TBD

8. Game Over, Man!

  • Position: Producer
  • Who else is involved? Adam Devine, Anders Holm, Blake Anderson
  • What’s it about? Described as “Die Hard in a hotel,” which — tbh — is all I need to know for now, and that’s just as well considering basically nothing is known about this movie. One would guess it might pull a Stranger Things and go full ’80s, seeing as the title is a direct nod to 1986’s Aliens, but we’ll have to wait and see.
  • Why you should watch: A Netflix Original comedy x Seth Rogen x the Workaholics gang. It’s a no brainer.
  • Release date: TBD
