I sat and watched Pineapple Express at a special screening last night. First off, it was just as funny as you might expect. Secondly, the film was followed by a Q&A with the film’s stars, director and producer. Those in attendance were Judd Apatow, Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen, James Franco, Danny McBride, Amber Heard and David Gordon Green.
During the Q&A it was brought to my attention that Greg Mottola, director of Superbad, was sitting directly behind me. It was brought to my attention by the fact that Mottola was called on by Apatow for a question. Mottola asked if the two of them would still be doing “those two sequels.” Judd Apatow replied “uh, yes.” This was followed by Seth Rogen joking that “we are going to crossover Superbad and Pineapple Express…it’s going to be like when The Jetsons met The Flinstones.”
Even though he was clearly joking, I would trust a project like that from the capable writing crew of Goldberg, Rogen and Apatow. It would be cool if Evan and Fogell were in college, and Seth visited and brought them some pineapple express. When they want more, they visit Saul…and that is when Officers Slater and Michaels become involved. I just may still be drunk, but I’d go see it. On a side note, Pineapple Express is hilarious.
Would you be interested in a Superbad/Pineapple Express crossover?
