Apatow Productions has picked up the comedy, The Middle Child from Jonah Hill to be distributed by Universal Pictures.

Hill will also star and write the script, based on his original idea that centers on a young man (Hill) who finds out that his parents gave up a child for adoption before he was born. The Hollywood Reporter adds when the son returns, the young man becomes the proverbial middle child and is an outcast in his own family, who look upon the newcomer as the son they've always wanted.

Judd Apatow will possibly direct, however no production schedule has been set for The Middle Child.
