In a story from Variety, Judd Apatow and Universal Pictures have grabbed three comedy pitches from Aziz Ansari (Parks and Recreation) and Jason Woliner.
Ansari will star in the three films.
Ansari and Woliner are going to write at least one of the projects which will be produced by Apatow.
The first project is called Let's Do This. It is a road movie about two motivational speakers. The second film is currently untitled. It focuses on an ex- cosmonaut (Ansari) who must go back to outer space and clear his name. The third project is also untitled, and it originated with the character he played in Funny People.
Woliner is set to direct the films.
"We didn't expect all three to work," stated Ansari. "We had a breakfast meeting with Judd and pitched them. We were like, 'Which one do you like?' He wanted all three."
