While the film is well on its way now under director Michel Gondry, its journey to the screen has been peppered with starts and stops as the project changed directors, cast, and even its tone. When MTV News spoke with him during the show, he offered some perspective on the film’s hard road to the big screen.
“I think I wasn’t in the movie for a few weeks,” laughed Rogen.
Asked whether the film really was as difficult to pull together as it seemed form the outside, Rogen seemed to infer that indeed it was — but the cast and filmmaking team pulled together to make it happen.
“Yeah, it was exponentially more difficult, but the fact that we all hung in there and kept working on it is a testament to the fact that we really like it and that ultimately we all kept thinking it was worthwhile and the idea was good enough to keep plowing forward with,” he added.
“Every possible obstacle came in our way at one point or another, to the point that it really just got ridiculous, but we kept saying we really love the movie, we really believe in the idea, this is our chance to do something like this, and we just got to keep trying to charge for it,” he continued. “And we made it.”
