SETH ROGEN and his THIS IS THE END co-director EVAN GOLDBERG will be feted with the Comedy Filmmakers of the Year award at the upcoming CinemaCon convention.

The funnyman and his frequent producing partner made their directing debut last summer (13) with the blockbuster apocalypse comedy, and their hard work will be recognized at the movie industry event on 27 March (14) in Las Vegas.

CinemaCon managing director Mitch Neuhauser praises Rogen and Goldberg's work in a statement that reads: "As writers, producers and directors, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have teamed up to bring audiences around the world some of the most outrageously, insanely funny comedies in recent years... When these two team up, hilarity and box office success ensue."

The duo's first collaboration was the hit 2007 breakout comedy Superbad, and they went on to work on movies such as Pineapple Express and The Green Hornet.

They also produced the upcoming comedy Neighbors, starring Rogen and Zac Efron, and their next directing collaboration, The Interview, is due out later this year (Oct14).
