Steven Spielberg Making His Own Biopic

Seth Rogen will play his uncle.

Steven Spielberg is making his own life story for a new movie. Well sort of anyway. The new film which stars Seth Rogen is partially based on the two time Academy Award winner’s life story. It will deal with his childhood, growing up in Phoenix, Arizona.

No, Seth Rogen will not be playing a young Steven Spielberg. Although, that might make for a really funny movie. Rogen will portray a favorite uncle of the director’s. Michelle Williams is also on board. She will play a fictitious character inspired by Steven Spielberg’s mother.

Steven Spielberg is also writing the movie himself. Tony Kushner is co-writing. It is set to start filming this summer and is expected to be released sometime in 2022. They are currently trying to find just the right actor to play young Steven Spielberg.

Seth Rogen is probably the most famous pot head in Hollywood. But he says that usually people just don’t recognize him when he goes out in public. Rogen, now a legal marijuana entrepreneur, recently told the New York Times, “Before the [Covid] pandemic, I would wander around L.A. aimlessly without anyone taking pictures of me for months and months and months on end.” Rogen explained that even fans who recognize him on the street, “think I’m just some guy who looks like me.”

Seth Rogen used the Coronavirus shutdown time to finish his new book. “Yearbook,” due out in May, is a collection of true stories that Rogen says he desperately hopes are just “funny at worst, and life-changingly amazing at best. (I understand that it’s likely the former, which is a fancy “book” way of saying “the first one.)”

In it he talks about his grandparents, doing stand-up comedy as a teenager, bar mitzvahs, and Jewish summer camp, and tell “way more stories about doing drugs than my mother would like. I also talk about some of my adventures in Los Angeles, and surely say things about other famous people that will create a wildly awkward conversation for me at a party one day.”
