Sony Pictures will release Knocked Up star Seth Rogen’s new comedy Pineapple Express on August 8, 2008, reports Variety. Rogen co-wrote the pic with Even Goldberg.
Produced by Knocked Up and The 40-Year-Old Virgin helmer Judd Apatow, the David Gorden Green-directed comedy also stars James Franco (“Spider-Man” franchise), Danny R. McBride, Gary Cole, Rosie Perez, Amber Heard and James Remar.
On their way to becoming self-actualized adults, a duo of delinquent dudes find themselves stymied by unfortunate habits. But when stuck-in-neutral process server Dale Denton (Rogen) inadvertently witnesses a drug-related murder, he and his bug Saul (Franco) find that sometimes the motivation you need to make something of your life is a mob of fugitives hunting you down.
