Bo Burnham Teams With Apatow

18-year-old songwriting comedian Bo Burnham is in negotiations with Universal to do the music and possibly star in a Judd Apatow-produced comedy says The Hollywood Reporter.

Burnham and Luke Liacos will co-write the script described as an anti-“High School Musical” though it is not a parody. Burnham began recording his songs in his bedroom a couple of years ago and has become an online sensation.

Apatow is in preproduction for an October start on Universal and Sony’s “Funny People” which sees him directing Seth Rogen, Adam Sandler, Jonah Hill and Eric Bana.
