|Anthony Mackie, Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt|
Set to co-star pal Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie, X-Mas has secured a Nov. 25 release date. While few details are known about Rogen's next comedy, the plot will reportedly focus on three friends who reunite in New York City to party on Christmas eve. Rogen will, of course, bring the Chanukah spirit, as evidenced by the sweater he'll be wearing.
Rogen's also ready to add another producing credit to his growing list of projects, as news broke this week that Garth Ennis' and Steve Dillon's '90s comic-book series Preacher will, after many years of being kicked around, go straight to series and air on AMC later this year. Rogen's producing partner,, Evan Goldberg, is also attached to the project.
While not a comic-book series focusing on run-of-the-mill meta-human heroes, it will feature Dominic Cooper, who has previously played Howard Stark (father of Tony Stark's Iron Man). as well James Bond creator Ian Fleming in the mini-series Fleming, which aired on BBC last year.
AMC is home to one the most watched sci-fi programs on cable television, The Walking Dead, and believes Preacher will be an excellent companion to it in the coming season.
