Judd Apatow will write and direct the Untitled Judd Apatow Comedy. He will also produce alongside Barry Mendel and Clayton Townsend. Little is known about the plot, although Judd Apatow revealed earlier this month that he wanted to find a way to bring back Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann's characters for this new movie. Here's what he had to say below.
"People were really taken by those characters. I think people really emotionally connected to the challenges of their marriage and I thought, you know, they were only a small portion of the movie. I'm a television writer so I always want another episode. I always want another 80 episodes. That's why after Forgetting Sarah Marshall, we said, "What else can we do with this character Russell Brand has created here?" I felt that way about Pete and Debbie from Knocked Up."
He also said there might be other cameos from Knocked Up characters in this new project, although it will depend on which actors are available. It isn't known when production will start on the Untitled Judd Apatow Comedy, although a June 1, 2012 release date has already been set.
