Ford Fiasco Helps Seth Rogan Sell Film About Crack-Smoking Politico
Well at least someone is benefitting from the Rob Ford fiasco, because it sure isn’t the city of Toronto.
Vancouver-born actor Seth Rogan has reportedly been peddling a script about a crack-smoking politico around Hollywood for years, but couldn’t get anyone to bite until Toronto’s mayor made headlines for doing the exact same thing.
“Thanks to this crazy Rob Ford, it sold a week ago. We’ve been trying to make it for three, four years,” Evan Goldberg, Rogan’s writing partner, told the Globe and Mail. “And we were getting ready to take it out again; we did a big rewrite over the last year and…then at the perfect moment, the real life version of this started to play out.”
