WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

In 1919, a lowly Eastern European labourer named Herschel Greenbaum (Rogen) emigrates to New York with dreams of building a better life for his family. He finds a job at a pickle factory, but when he accidentally falls into a vat of pickles the brine preserves him and he comes up to find that 100 years have suddenly passed, and that he hasn’t aged a day. After tracking down his descendant, computer coder Ben (also Rogen), Herschel sets out to fulfil his original promise to build a better life…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Seth Rogen takes on a double role in what is perhaps one of the strangest projects that the actor has participated in… and this is the same guy who came up with Sausage Party!
