'50/50' filmmakers Seth Rogen and Will Reiser book a new trip

July 6, 2011 |  3:57 pm

Rogen The trailer for "50/50," a dramatic comedy about a young man's bout with cancer, is drawing warm notices ahead of its release this fall. Now the principals say they will reunite on a new film.

"50/50" director Jonathan Levine, writer Will Reiser and producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are teaming up for a comedy titled "Jamaica," about a teenage boy's trip with his grandmother to the Caribbean island. Like "50/50," the project will draw from Reiser's own experience.

The film, which was conceived by Reiser, will be financed and produced by Mandate Pictures; the company, which served in the same capacity on "50/50," also counts young-skewing hits such as "Juno" among its credits.

Rogen, who stars in "50" alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt, is not on board to star in "Jamaica" at this point.

The parties announced the new film in a statement Wednesday. While they did not provide further plot details, Reiser did call the movie a "story that I've long wanted to tell."
