It's Apocalypse now for Seth Rogen.

The Knocked Up funnyman, along with fellow Judd Apatow repertory player Jay Baruchel, have teamed up to star in the aptly if not very creatively titled action comedy Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse.

The flick is based on a comedy short written by Rogen and his Superbad coscribe Evan Goldberg. Apocalypse made a splash online last summer when a trailer for the would-be film surfaced on YouTube.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Rogen and Goldberg were also given full creative control and final cut over the pet project.

The film will revolve around two guys—who, if history is any indication, may also happen to be stoners—who survive the apocalypse and are left to deal with the fallout together.

Shooting is set to start in 2009.
