Screenwriter Evan Goldberg wrote his first screenplay with best bud Seth Rogen when he was 13-years-old. That was a coming of age comedy about two friends suffering from separation anxiety. It was later titled Superbad and became a box office hit. After much success, the writing team took their buddy magic up a notch to write and produce Pineapple Express, the stoner comedy about two unlikely friends who get mixed up with some very dangerous drug dealers. Now, the dynamic duo is about to hit the action scene with the superhero buddy flick, The Green Hornet. The action/comedy film is set to release January 14 and starts Rogen, Jay Chou and Cameron Diaz. Script sat down with Goldberg in his Hornet trailer on the Sony lot to discuss how he and his best friend went from Superbad to superhero and how much fun they had along the way.
