Rogen and Streisand to team-up on screen

Vancouver-born funnyman Seth Rogen, 29, is teaming up with movie and music industry legend Barbra Streisand, 69, who will play his mother in, The Guilt Trip, due out in November. Directed by Anne Fletcher of The Proposal and scripted by Dan Fogelman who also wrote Crazy Stupid Love and Cars, the movie has a noteworthy cast along for the ride.

The Guilt Trip co-stars include Yvonne Strahovski, who just ended a five-season run on NBC's Chuck and will play Rogen's on-screen love interest. Colin Hanks and Kathy Najimy are also set to appear in the film.

The story, based on Fogelman's own experience, follows Rogen as an inventor who invites his mother on a cross-country road trip to sell his latest invention and reunite her with a lost love. In an interview, Rogen was quoted as saying that Streisand "really was into being a comedy team. She really embraced the idea that it was a buddy comedy between mother and son."
