Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

On August 16, 2017, it was announced that Seth Rogen's Point Grey Pictures and Good Universe would produce a comedy film together from writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, and both would also make their directorial debut. The film would be produced by Rogen, Evan Goldberg, James Weaver, Nathan Kahane, and Joe Drake.[6] In March 2018, Jacob Tremblay was cast in the film titled Good Boys, to which Universal Pictures bought the distribution rights.[7]

The film is being shot in Vancouver.[8]

Blackface controversy[edit]

Controversy over the making of the film aroused when TMZ leaked photos of child actor Keith L. Williams' stand-in substitute in blackface.[9][10][11] Both Williams and his stand-in are African-American, but the latter is light-skinned.[12][13][14] Rogen issued an apology over the controversy.[15][16][17][18]

Release[edit]

Good Boys is scheduled to be released on August 16, 2019 by Universal Pictures.[19]
