Andy Serkis Joins Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron in ‘Flarsky’

Andy Serkis is joining Lionsgate’s Charlize Theron-Seth Rogen feature film “Flarsky,” portraying a media mogul who employs Rogen’s journalist character.

Flarsky” is directed by Jonathan Levine from Dan Sterling’s script. The comedy is currently shooting in Montreal. Lionsgate has set a Feb. 9, 2019, release date.

Rogen is playing the titular Fred Flarsky, battered by his own misfortune and self-destructive ways, who endeavors to pursue Theron’s character — his childhood crush and babysitter, who now happens to be the U.S. Secretary of State and is one of the most unattainable women on earth.

Serkis portrayed the lead character Caesar in Fox’s “War for the Planet of the Apes.” He made his directorial debut on “Breathe,” starring Andrew Garfield and Claire Foy, and is in post-production on the live-action “Jungle Book,” which Warner Bros. will open on Oct. 19.

Rogen’s Point Grey Pictures, Theron’s Denver and Delilah Films, and Good Universe are the production companies on “Flarsky.” Producers are Point Grey principals Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and James Weaver, alongside Denver and Delilah’s Theron, Beth Kono, and A.J. Dix. Sterling will also executive produce alongside Good Universe’s Nathan Kahane and Joe Drake. Alex McAtee is overseeing the project for Point Grey and Erin Westerman for Good Universe.

Serkis is repped by CAA and Larry Taube at Principal Entertainment.
