The New York Times Review of Books described it as a “moving and clear-eyed look at aging and death in our society, and at the harms, we do in turning it into a medical problem, rather than a human one.” The Boston Globe called it a “masterful exploration of aging, death and the medical profession’s mishandling of both.”

Co-written by Youree Henley, who also serves as a producer, the feature will mark the maiden collaboration between Rogen and Murray. Filming is expected to kick-start in the month of April. Searchlight Pictures is set to release the film theatrically in 2023.

Meanwhile, Seth Rogen is currently seen in Hulu’s hit series Pam & Tommy starring Lily James and Sebastian Stan. He will next star in Steven Spielberg’s The Fabelmans. The forthcoming film by Universal Pictures also features Michelle Williams and Paul Dano in important roles.
