Two of the men behind the cult classic TV series Freaks and Geeks are joining forces once again, this time for a silver-screen project. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Judd Apatow, who wrote and executive produced Freaks and Geeks, is reteaming with Freaks and Geeks series creator Paul Feig for a new, untitled comedy project for Universal Pictures.
Kristen Wiig is attached to star in the film and she also co-wrote the screenplay with Annie Mumolo, which revolves around two women fighting it out to control their friend's wedding party. The project, which was formerly called Bridesmaids, attracted the attention of Flight of the Conchords creator James Bobin, before he dropped out to direct the new Muppet movie.
It wasn't clear what roles both Apatow and Feig would have on the film, if they would just produce the film or if one would direct. We'll be sure to keep you posted on any new updates surrounding this hot project as soon as more information arises.
