Coming-of-age teen comedy in 2007 Very bad took the box office by surprise, raised $ 170 million on a $ 20 million budget, and turned two leads, Jonah Hill and Michael Cera, into an instant star. Now the cast of the cult hit film gathers for a Superbad watch party for a fundraiser for the Democratic Party of Wisconsin.
The spectator party is included Jonah Hillwho played Seth Michael Cerawho played Evan, Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Fogell alias McLovin), Seth Rogen (Officer Michaels; writer), Bill Hader (Officer Slater) and Martha MacIssac (Becca), all attending along with writer Evan Goldberg, director Greg Mottola and producer Judd Apatow. Wisconsin Democratic Party Chairman Ben Wikler thanked the Superbad team for participating in the fundraiser.
"We're thrilled to have the Superbad cast coming to us … With the help of our talented guests, we know we can win this election for Wisconsin and the country. Have a laugh with us as we raise funds and mobilize volunteers." We have to finish this race strong. "
Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg began writing the screenplay for Superbad at the age of 13, based on their experience in 12th grade in Vancouver in the 1990s. The duo originally intended to play the leads themselves, but by the time the project was ready to be shot, Rogen and Goldberg had aged out of the roles.
And so Hill and Cera took on the now iconic roles of Seth and Evan, two high school students who, along with their third criminal partner, McLovin, go on a crazy quest to lose their virginity before high school ends.
While the film's premise for a youthful rom-com was almost painfully general, what made Superbad one of the best comedies of the decade was the performance of Hill, Cera, Mintz-Plasse and Emma Stein in one of their earliest roles. Fans have been calling for a sequel to Superbad for more than a decade, but Rogen stated earlier this year that he had no intention of returning to this world.
"I think about all the movies we've ever made. Superbad is the one I'd probably 100 percent never touch. Honestly, I don't think it takes any improvement or anything to build on. I'm incredibly proud of it it, it really holds up – people still watch it, high school kids come up to me and tell me they first saw it and how they loved it, it turned out to be one of the better high school movies That's out there. I'm so scared of pulling out of it with a bad sequel or spin-off that I never would. I have so few really good performances that I'm appalled to fuck with those who I have (laughs). "
While fans may not get a sequel to Superbad anytime soon, they can take a trip back in time with many of the main characters from the original film on October 27 at 8 p.m. CT. This message is from The Hollywood Reporter.
