HOLLYWOOD – Seth Rogen is to star in a new live action version of the spot the kid with the stripey jumper and woolly hat Where’s Waldo?
Speaking EXCLUSIVELY to the Studio Exec, Seth Rogen was full of beans about his new film Where’s Waldo?
Where’s Waldo? is the one of the most exciting properties I’ve ever worked on. I loved The Interview and Pineapple Express and I’d love to get The Franco on board for this too.
So Where’s Waldo? is based on the … thing? The book with the guy in the crowd?
That’s right. Growing up Waldo was like… this icon. He was a book of course but also a game, and in some ways he was also a really deep philosophical notion.
I don’t get it. This is the guy with the red and white…
Yeah. The hat and the sweater and he’s in the crowd and you have to spot him.
And this is going to be a cartoon? I mean, you’re doing the voices?
No, it’s live action. We’re going to be in it. I’m in it. I’m going to play Waldo. And we’re going to make it interactive so that the audience can actually shout out ‘Waldo’s there!’ I’ve found him.
Are you high?
Absolutely. So what?
All we need is the Franco on board. He can like be trying to find Waldo. Maybe he can shout out Where’s Waldo? and it’ll be great.
