Workaholics co-creators Adam Devine, Anders Holm, Blake Anderson and Kyle Newacheck are teaming up with Seth Rogen and Scott Rudin for the action comedy Game Over, Man!

Netflix is behind the feature, which has a host of producers: Rogen, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver via their Point Grey banner; and Rudin and Eli Bush via Scott Rudin Productions. Also producing are Devine, Holm, Anderson and Newacheck, who collectively form the comedy group Mail Order Comedy, as well as Isaac Horne of Avalon Management.

Plot details are being kept under lock and key, but it is being described as an original feature that is in the vein of a "Die Hard in a hotel," according to sources.

The title is a callback to the phrase uttered by Bill Paxton’s stressed-out Marine character in the 1986 sci-fi classic Aliens.

Holm wrote the script based on a story that the foursome developed together. Newacheck will direct while Devine, Holm and Anderson will star. Rogen is not set to act in the project at this stage.

Mail Order Comedy’s Workaholics, a hit show for Comedy Central, was recently renewed for seasons six and seven. The group is repped by WME, Avalon Management and Morris Yorn.
