Seth Green to Make Feature Film Directorial Debut With ‘Changeland’

Seth Green is making his feature film directorial and writing debut in the independent drama-comedy movie “Changeland,” in which he will also star.

Production begins this week in Thailand. The film centers on Green’s always hesitant character undergoing a personal crisis as he meets up in Thailand with his self-assured best friend, portrayed by Breckin Meyer.

Changeland” is produced by Corey Moosa (“Margin Call”). Executive producers are Green’s Stoopid Buddy Stoodios partners Matthew Senreich, John Harvatine IV and Eric Towner; Living Films’ Chris Lowenstein and Oliver Ackermann; Karivara Films’ Jimmy Matthews and John Lee; and Cohen Gardner LLP’s Jonathan Gardner.

Also starring are Brenda Song, Clare Grant, Macaulay Culkin, Rose Williams, Kedar Williams-Stirling and WWE’s Randy Orton.

“It feels like a dream to be filming in Thailand with an incredible crew and some of my closest friends,” Green said. “We are one of the first films to take advantage of Thailand’s new incentive measures from the Thailand Film Office and the Department of Tourism. I am very excited to share this story.”

Green’s acting credits include the Austin Powers trilogy, “The Italian Job,” “Party Monster,” “Without a Paddle,” and “Can’t Hardly Wait.” Green portrays Christopher Guest in Netflix’s upcoming National Lampoon origin film, “A Futile & Stupid Gesture.”

Green is the co-creator/executive producer/primary voice talent and a writer/director on “Robot Chicken” and has voiced Chris Griffin on “Family Guy” since the series’ inception. Green’s deal was handled by UTA, Untitled, and Sloane, Offer, Weber and Dern, LLP’s David Weber.
