Judd Apatow promises new movie in 2012

Judd Apatow

Knocked Up funny man Judd Apatow has revealed that he’s started work on his next film project, which is set to be released by Universal on 1 June, 2012.

Though there are zero details on the film beyond that, we’re pretty sure that it will involve a string of hilarious gags moulded around a story with genuine warmth and heart.

Apatow’s last film as writer and director was Adam Sandler-starrer Funny People , which received fair praise last year.

For now, the comedy mastermind is also keeping busy producing Wanderlust (starring Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston), as well as Business Trip and the feature film Pee-Wee Herman .

Considering this is the man who crashed onto the movie directing scene with The 40-Year-Old Virgin , and has produced everything from Freaks And Geeks to Talladega Nights , we’re chomping at the bit for his next solo effort.

Josh Winning has worn a lot of hats over the years. Contributing Editor at Total Film, writer for SFX, and senior film writer at the Radio Times. Josh has also penned a novel about mysteries and monsters, is the co-host of a movie podcast, and has a library of pretty phenomenal stories from visiting some of the biggest TV and film sets in the world. He would also like you to know that he "lives for cat videos..." Don't we all, Josh. Don't we all.
