The Something is the brainchild of writer Rodney Rothman, who has worked on the scripts for Grudge Match (2013) and 22 Jump Street (2014) and has been a consultant and producer on various other movies. Now he is stepping up to direct his latest idea, which finds a group of male astronauts stuck in space alone for years who suddenly cross paths with another ship.
Universal Pictures are backing the film, with Rogen also producing via his company Point Grey Pictures. Quite what the trio will be up to has yet to be announced.
Rogen is back this year with Bad Neighbours 2: Sorority Rising and animated feature Sausage Party. He has also been working on James Franco's (As I Lay Dying) film about the making of The Room, The Disaster Artist. Hader is one of the voices in the aforementioned Sausage Party, has also lent his tonsil talents to The Angry Birds Movie and will be Bloodbottler the giant in Steven Spielberg's (Licoln) The BFG. Galifianakis, meanwhile, has been shooting spy comedy Keeping Up With The Joneses and will voice The Joker in next year's The Lego Batman Movie.
