Variety.com plot of the film:
Herschel Greenbaum (Rogen), a struggling laborer who immigrates to America in 198 with dreams of building a better life for his beloved family. One day, while working at his factory job, he falls into a vat of pickles and is brined for 100 years. The brine preserves him perfectly and when he emerges in present day Brooklyn, he finds that he hasn’t aged a day. But when he seeks out his family, he is horrified to learn that his only surviving relative is his great grandson, Ben Greenbaum (also played by Rogen), a mild-mannered computer coder whom Herschel can’t even begin to understand.
Again, great to hear more news about novellas being noticed by hollywood studios. All the best to those working on this project. In the meanwhile you guys can check out Simon Rich's novella by clicking the link I previously posted. If you want to read the excerpt of my novellas then simply click on each title (The box in the Spare Room, House Trap, Fiery Trap, Stained, and Chockstone). Hopefully one of them, if not all of them, would get noticed by a Hollywood studio and get made into a feature film. Finger-cross it would be sooner rather than later.
