(Newser) – If you are Amy Pascal, and the name "Seth Rogen" comes up in the same galaxy, you'll want to duck because nothing good ever comes of this. Rogen once told an interviewer that he had "a terrible case of I-wanna-smoke-weed-all-day," and sources tell the Hollywood Reporter that is no exaggeration: Pascal is due to move into offices recently occupied by Rogen and Evan Goldberg as part of her demotion, er, transition to producing. The problem, as per the sources : The smell of pot is so bad "that the problem will require an industrial-strength solution rather than a bottle of Febreze."

Rogen, for his part, slapped the story on Instagram, albeit backhandedly: "I don't know what's more irresponsible: that they would print a story that is completely untrue, or that they would refer to how pot smells as a 'stench.' #myshitssmellsgood." The Reporter maintains that Sony is repainting the suite "in an effort to eradicate the smell," but while they work on it, Pascal will head to temporary offices. Sources variously tell the Reporter that 1) the smell has risen to the third floor, 2) it's ingrained in the flooring, and 3) Rogen wasn't there long enough to cause permanent harm. Sony had nothing to say on the matter.
