I’ve seen all of director David Gordon Green’s films except Snow Angles and upcoming Pineapple Express, and looking forward to his unique approach tackling Pineapple‘s humor. Seth Rogen, Danny McBride and James Franco star of Pineapple Express attend Maxim event at the J6Bar Rooftop at the Hotel Solamar in San Diego, California.
Pineapple Express is shot by cinematographer Tim Orr, written by Rogen and Evan Goldberg and hits theaters on August 06.
In Pineapple Express, Rogen’s Dale Denton visits his dealer Franco’s Saul Silver to purchase weed, specifically, a rare new strain called Pineapple Express. But when Dale becomes the only witness to a murder by a crooked cop and the city’s most dangerous drug lord, he panics and dumps his roach of Pineapple Express at the scene. Dale now has another reason to visit Saul: to find out if the weed is so rare that it can be traced back to him. And it is. As Dale and Saul run for their lives, they quickly discover that they’re not suffering from weed-fueled paranoia; incredibly, the bad guys really are hot on their trail and trying to figure out the fastest way to kill them both. All aboard the Pineapple Express.

Nobody was funnier than George Carlin. I spent half my childhood in my room listening to his records experiencing pure joy. And he was as kind as he was funny. – Judd Apatow
George did me a solid when he accepted the part of the orally fixated hitchhiker who knew exactly how to get a ride in “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.” When he wrapped his scene in that flick, I thanked him for making the time, and he said, “Just do me a favor: Write me my dream role one day.” When I inquired what that’d be, he offered, “I wanna play a priest who strangles children.”
It was a classic Carlin thing to say: a little naughty and a lot honest. I always figured there’d be time to give George what he asked for. Unfortunately, he left too soon.
He was, and will likely remain, the smartest person I’ve ever met. But really, he was much more than just a person. Without a hint of hyperbole, I can say he was a god, a god who cussed. – Director Kevin Smith remembers George Carlin in Newsweek
