Funny lads Zach Galifianakis, Seth Rogen, and Bill Hader will play astronauts in The Something, a comedy about an all-male, marooned-in-space crew that finally encounters another ship after years of isolation.

Do they find ... a ship crewed entirely by female astronauts? Some kind of deep-space alien monster? A portal to another dimension? An empty ship filled with hallucinations? Details other than that killer cast are slim, but The Hollywood Reporter does offer this:

Rodney Rothman, who wrote the scripts for 22 Jump Street and Grudge Match, penned The Something and will make his directorial debut with the film, along with producing. Rogen’s Point Grey Pictures is producing along with Good Universe.

We’re intrigued, because yay for science fiction comedies in general, and these guys seem like they could combine powers and make something genuinely hilarious.
