Judd Apatow plans Stand-Up flick

Judd Apatow is set to return to his roots with his next film - which will revolve around the lives of stand-up comics.

Apatow started out as a stand-up in his high school days, before quickly realising that he was a better writer than performer and stopped standing behind a mike and started sitting in front of a Mac instead.

The film will star Adam Sandler, who Apatow met during his stand-up days, and has been described as a dramady - which means it'll be more along the lines of Judd's 40 Year Old Virgin than Walk Hard. Which is fine by us.
