Seth Rogen has revealed that one of his most well-known movies is unlikely to ever get a sequel. Sorry guys.
The actor, who stars in the new comedy An American Pickle, took a look back at his career in a new interview, and ruled-out doing a follow-up to Superbad... and it looks like This Is The End may not get one either.
"I think of all the movies we've ever made, Superbad is the one I'd 100 percent probably never touch," Rogen admitted to LadBible.
"Honestly, I don't think it requires improvement or anything to be built upon it. I'm unbelievably proud of it, it really holds up – people still watch it, high school kids come up to me telling me that they watched it for the first time and how they loved it.
"It's worked its way into being viewed as one of the better high school movies that's out there.
"I'm so terrified of subtracting from it in any way with a bad sequel or spin-off that I'd never do it. I have so few actual good accomplishments that I'm horrified to f**k with the ones I have [laughs]."
He also admitted that while he likes the scenario for 2013's This Is The End, which sees Rogen and friends try to survive the apocalypse, he doesn't think a sequel is on the cards there either.
"I don't think I'd make a sequel or spin-off to This Is The End, but we like the idea of famous people stuck in supernatural situations, basically," he said.
We mean, how can you top that ending of everyone dancing to the Backstreet Boys in heaven?
Meanwhile, Rogen has said that the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has made it more difficult for comedy movies to do well at the box office.
"Thor: Ragnarok is a comedy. Ant-Man is a comedy at its core. So that's what's out there. There are $200 million comedies out there, and so that's something, as a comedic filmmaker, to be aware of. That is the benchmark that people expect!" he told GamesRadar.
