Universal Pictures' The Something will star Seth Rogen, Zach Galifianakis, and Bill Hader

Three hilarious comedians are teaming up to star in Universal Pictures’ The Something to create what should be comedy gold: Seth Rogen, Zach Galifianakis, and Bill Hader have all signed on for the space comedy, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

In the upcoming flick, the three funnymen will play a group of astronauts who have been stuck in space for years. Their isolated situation will change, however, when they come across another spaceship. No details have been revealed about just who or what will be in the other spacecraft yet, but it sounds like a promising premise.

The Something is set to be the directorial debut of Rodney Rothman, whose work includes writing the scripts for 22 Jump Street and Grudge Match. He wrote the upcoming space movie as well and will produce alongside Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and James Weaver, all of Point Grey Pictures. Good Universe will also produce, and Universal Pictures greenlighted the film and will distribute it.

The combination of Rogen, Galifianakis, and Hader is definitely one to look forward to. Not only has each actor has proven himself in comedy films in the past, Rogen and Hader have even successfully teamed up in numerous movies. The two can both be seen in popular flicks like Superbad, Pineapple Express, and Knocked Up.

Rogen has recently appeared in The Night Before and the Aaron Sorkin-penned Steve Jobs biopic, and he’ll next be seen in Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, the sequel to the 2014 hit. Meanwhile, Hader’s other credits include Trainwreck alongside Amy Schumer and multiple seasons on Saturday Night Live, among other projects. Galifianakis is known for work including the Hangover movies, Birdman, and his talk show, Between Two Ferns.

A release date for The Something has not yet been announced.

Not 65? Dish’s senior deal may still save you $165 [Sponsored]
Man watching NFL on Dish.

Your first gray hairs and wrinkles likely started way before 65, and with Dish so can your senior discounts. Dish is a satellite-based TV service that serves all parts of the country, even places where traditional cable and internet providers might not have the infrastructure for. And, if you're a mere 55, you can get access to Dish's "55 and Older Deal". It's a deal that provides free content of your choosing at the beginning of every month, perfect for those days of extra relaxing that you've earned with time. This deal represents a $165 value, yours free if you sign up with Dish via the button below. Keep reading for more details and why you should get Dish.

Why you should get Dish at 55+
In general, Dish is very convenient for the quiet lifestyle. If you're migrating to lower cost parts of the country to plan for a cheaper, more fulfilling retirement, you might find that infrastructure for services you're used to isn't quite the same. Dish changes that quite a bit, due to their satellite-based service that works everywhere equally. All you need is a roof and the ability to point at the sky. Plus, Dish has some perks that you wouldn't normally realize. With Dish, for example, you can catch every NFL game — even those out-of-market ones that other services miss — and with your extra time, you might be able to actually catch them. If you're hosting Christmas with the grandkids, Dish Christmas movies will be an entertainment lifesaver.

What’s new on HBO and Max
Daniel Craig and Judi Dench in Skyfall.

It would be nice to say that HBO and Max are offering their subscribers something nice this Christmas. But the truth is that there's not a lot to get excited about in December on Max. While it's good to see that most James Bond movies are coming to Max, it's equally disheartening that Max is undergoing yet another animation purge. Several Adult Swim series are exiting Max at the end of December, and even a few other cartoons like Beware the Batman are also leaving.

December is shaping up to be a very lackluster and disappointing month on Max. Hopefully, things will pick up in January when we officially start a new year. For now, our complete list of what's coming to HBO and Max in December is below. Titles without "HBO" in the listing will only be available on Max. DT's film and TV show recommendations are in bold.
