We recently reported on Seth Rogan's claim that George Lucas believes the world will end in 2012. Everybody's been giggling about it, and a Lucasfilm representative finally emerged to say Lucas was just kidding, according to Wired.
“I spoke with George,” said Lucasfilm rep Lynne Hale in an e-mail to Wired.com about this issue of obvious intergalactic importance.
“He was not serious when he talked about the end of the world in 2012, but he is an adamant believer that the world is flat, that Stonehenge was built by aliens, and that the sun revolves around the Earth,” Hale said. “These are among the many subjects he commonly discusses at length with Elvis, who he’s going to digitally insert into Indy 5 along with a roster of famous dead actors.”
The Green Hornet actor might well have been joking about the whole thing, too, and the blogosphere is clearly not going to let a little reporting get in the way of a thousand weaselly headlines. But one thing’s for sure: Rogen’s not getting a seat on Lucas’ rocket ship if doomsday hits next year.
“Seth Rogen is a funny guy,” Lucasfilm’s Hale said, “but George and Steven are taking Chris Rock with them on the Millennium Falcon!”
Interesting comment on the insertion of dead actors into a movie, given that Lucas has been buying the rights to various dead actors.
