A screenplay from the Black List has landed a premiere date. Seth Rogen (“Sausage Party”) and Charlize Theron (“Atomic Blonde”) are set to star in the upcoming comedy “Flarsky,” which premieres Feb. 8, 2019, according to a press release on Tuesday. Jonathan Levine (“50/50”) is attached to direct the film, which was written by Dan Sterling (“The Interview”). “Flarsky” will be the third film to premiere that day, alongside Warner Bros. “The Lego Movie 2” and Sony’s “Silver and Black,” according to Variety.
“Flarsky” is the story of an unlucky, self-destructive journalist, played by Rogen, who decides to pursue his childhood dreamgirl. But here’s the problem: the young teenager has grown into one of the world’s most powerful women. How will the unemployed writer catch the eye of a woman lightyears out of his league?
According to THR, Rogen, Evan Goldberg (“This is the End”) and James Weaver (“Neighbors”) will produce under their “Point Grey” banner, alongside Theron, Beth Kono (“Atomic Blonde”) and A.J. Dix (“Atomic Blonde”) under their “Denver & Delilah” banner. Sterling will pull double duty as an executive producer alongside Nathan Kahane (“Juno”) and Joe Drake (“The Hunger Games” series) from Good Universe. Alex McAtee (“The Interview”) will oversee “Flarsky” for Point Grey, as will Erin Westerman (“Don’t Breathe”) for Good Universe.
Summit has previously worked with Rogen and Levine on their dramedy “50/50,” which starred Joseph Gordon Levitt (“Snowden”), Anna Kendrick (“Into the Woods”) and Rogen. Levine also directed “Warm Bodies,” another Summit film.
Production on “Flarsky” is set to begin this fall. The comedy will premiere Feb. 8, 2019.
