Although he’s been pretty vocal on Twitter, Seth Rogen hasn’t really graced our screens all that much in the last few years.

Of course he had such hits as Disaster Artist and Sausage Party for us to enjoy, but other than those, his limelight presence has been fleeting.

That’s not to last though, as Rogen is on the way back.

Variety report that the writer-actor has signed a deal with Sony, to create a new film that will follow a pickle-maker in 1918. But that’s not it…

The pickle-maker will, presumably, fall into a vat of pickle juice, which will preserve him. He will then be revived 100 years later (which makes sense???) and have to live in a modern day Trump-run America.

Obviously the science isn’t all there but that’s sort of a funny idea. It’s interesting that they decided to go down the pickle route, rather than the freezing one – but I suppose that’s low-hanging fruit these days.

So it’s sort of like Captain America without the punching and kicking.

Although this is a Seth Rogen film so you can be sure there will be a scene where he experiences smoking weed for the first time.

Along with this, Rogen will be playing the lead in next year’s Flarsky, which follows him as an unemployed journalist, who becomes instrumental in Charlize Theron’s bid to become the first female president of the United States. Maybe there’s a scene where Rogen makes her appeal to kids by showing her smoke weed or something..?

He’s also going to voice Pumbaa in Jon Favreau’s The Lion King, which should be a lot of fun.

The pickle film is yet to be titled, but I’m going out on a limb and saying it’s going to be called Pickle Man. Just a hunch, really…
