Goldberg

Writer / Producer

With lifelong friend Seth Rogen, the Canadian director-writer-producer has become a comedy hitmaker, starting with the duo’s first writing effort, “Superbad” — conceived while in high school — which grossed $170 million on a $20 million budget. They sealed the deal with $100 million plus success, “Pineapple Express.” Since then, the two have turned out a string of raunchy, modestly budgeted hits including “Blockers,” “Neighbors,” “Sausage Party” and “This Is the End.” Their Point Grey Pictures expanded to TV, bringing edgy comic-book “Preacher” to AMC and launching sci-fi laugher “Future Man” on Hulu. Producing ventures include next year’s “Flarsky,” with Rogen and Charlize Theron, and R-rated tween comedy “Good Boys,” with Jacob Tremblay of “Room” and “ Wonder.”
