Two Apatow Comedy Film Updates

Chris O’Dowd, Lena Dunham, Charlyne Yi and Wyatt Russell are all in negotiations to join Judd Apatow’s next project “This is Forty” at Universal Pictures says Variety.

Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann are set to reprise the husband-and-wife roles they played in Apatow’s “Knocked Up”. O’Dowd and Dunham will play employees of Rudd’s indie record company. Russell will play a hockey player. Yi will reprise her “Knocked Up” character, Jodi.

Megan Fox and Albert Brooks also star.

Apatow will also produce a new untitled project currently setup at Universal Pictures which “Bridesmaids” helmer Paul Feig will write and direct.

The film is described as an “unconventional love story” project, though no further story details have yet been released. It’s not a “Bridesmaids” sequel, though there’s talk that may happen at Universal as well as the first film crossed the $100 million domestic box office mark.
