'Superbad' Star McLovin' a Reunion
Christopher Mintz-Plasse gets to work with Michael Cera and Judd Apatow again
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mintz-Passe will also be reuniting with "Superbad" co-star Michael Cera in the Columbia comedy "Year One."
Oliver Platt, David Cross, Vinnie Jones and Juno Temple have all signed on for the Harold Ramis-directed comedy as well.
Very little is known about "Year One" except that it's set in biblical times and Jack Black is toplining with Cera.
The trade paper says that Platt will play "a platform-shoe-wearing high priest" and that Jones will be a palace guard named Sargon. That probably isn't informative enough, but perhaps more details will be revealed when production begins in January in Louisiana and New Mexico.
Ramis wrote the script along with Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg.
Last seen on the big screen in "Martian Child" and in the ESPN miniseries "The Bronx Is Burning," Platt just finished work on Ron Howard's "Frost/Nixon."
Cross, who appeared with Cera in the Howard-produced "Arrested Development," is now in theaters with "I'm Not There."
Juggernaut in "X-Men: The Last Stand," Jones has "Midnight Meat Train" on tap.
Temple co-stars in "Atonement" and the upcoming "The Other Boleyn Girl," while Mintz-Plasse is expected to appear in the comedy "Little Big Men."
