Being Mortal: Seth Rogers Joins Bill Murray in Aziz Ansari’s Next?

Aziz Ansari’s directorial debut ‘Being Mortal’ seems to be building its cast around Hollywood’s iconic comedy legends. It was previously announced that the film will star actor-comedian Bill Murray. And, now joining the cast is Hollywood actor Seth Rogen, who was recently seen in Hulu’s ‘Pam & Tommy’. Even before the release of the film, the looks like it will be one helluva ride to be on.

Not only will the audiences witness Ansari direct and appear in the film, but he has also written the script and is producing the project with Youree Henley. Taylor Friedman and Cameron Chidsey are overseeing for Searchlight Pictures, reports ‘Variety’. The film is based on Atul Gawande’s non-fiction book, ‘Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End’, which admittedly doesn’t sound like a laugh riot. Principal photography will start this April, with Searchlight Pictures set to release the film theatrically in 2023.

Rogen’s last series only Hulu also starred Lily James and Sebastian Stan. He also recently starred in ‘An American Pickle’ and in ‘Long Shot’ alongside Charlize Theron. His other credits include ‘Superbad’ and ‘Knocked Up’. He will next be seen in Steven Spielberg’s ‘The Fabelmans’ alongside Michelle Williams and Paul Dano for Universal Pictures.
