Seth Rogen has signed up to produce Disney spy comedy 'The B Team'.

The 'Pineapple Express' is also thought to be keen to star in the caper, about a top spy being kidnapped and the efforts of his support team to rescue him.

Although he is better known as an actor, Seth has also been producer on a number of films including 'Knocked Up', 'Superbad', and 'The Green Hornet'.

'The B Team' is still in the early stages of development, from a script written by Derek Guiley and David Schneiderman.

Seth - who most recently worked on cancer survivor film '50/50' which he produced and starred in - recently told how he likes to look for an element of comedy in every film he is pitched.

He said: "I guess when you work in comedy it comes naturally to you. Like whenever anyone gives me an idea for a movie, I think it's a comedy and it's just not, like, 'We've got this idea where a guy gets hit by a car and has his leg cut off.' 'That sounds hilarious!' 'It's not meant to be funny at all!' To me you either inherently see things as funny or not."
