Judd Apatow on set of Dreamworks' Anchorman
After delivering the comedy The 40 Year Old Virgin back in 2005, Judd Apatow has only begun to pick up new projects. One such project is Super Bad, a film that will reunite the director-slash-producer with Virgin star Seth Rogan.
Apatow, Rogan Are Super Bad
According to THR, Columbia Pictures has picked up Judd Apatow to produce the upcoming comedy Super Bad. As a bonus, Seth Rogan has hopped on board to not only co-star but pen the screenplay as well.
Greg Mottola, who directed several episodes of Apatow's short-lived TV series Undeclared, will helm Super Bad, with Apatow regular Jonah Hill and Michael Cera on board to star.
Saturday Night Live's Bill Hader is also in talks to co-star.
The story revolves around two co-dependent high school seniors (Hill and Cera) who set out to score alcohol for a party, believing that girls will then hook up with them and they will be ready for college. But as the night grows more chaotic, overcoming their separation anxiety becomes a greater challenge than getting the girls.
Apatow brought the screenplay to Columbia Pictures with a fall start date in mind.
