The team behind FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL is getting ready to reteam before the film even hits theaters. Producer Judd Apatow, writer-star Jason Segel, director Nick Stoller and Universal will all work together again on the comedy FIVE-YEAR ENGAGEMENT. As the title suggests, the film will follow a man (Segel) and his lengthy engagement to his fiancee. Stoller describes the film as a sequel to FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL "if Sarah Marshall and Jason's character had stayed together." Stoller and Segel, who met on the Apatow sitcom "Undeclared," will co-write ENGAGEMENT together. Segel will next film the Paul Rudd comedy I LOVE YOU, MAN for DreamWorks, after which he could begin filming on ENGAGEMENT. Apatow, who has yet to decide on his next directing gig, has a ton of producing credits in the works including the now-filming Jack Black/Michael Cera comedy YEAR ONE, DRILLBIT TAYLOR, PINEAPPLE EXPRESS and STEP BROTHERS. Segel can also be seen on the CBS sitcom "How I Met Your Mother."

Extra Tidbit: Stoller wrote the title song from the Will Ferrell comedy BLADES OF GLORY.

Sounds good to me

I'm already there for this movie because in my book Apatow and crew have not made one bad movie yet (well maybe Dewey Cox but it wasn't that bad of a film). I mean Freeks and Geeks, Undeclared, The 40 Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up, Superbad, Dewey Cox were are great tv shows/movies. Plus, The Pineapple Express with Rogen and Franco looks hilarious just like Forgetting Sarah Marshall. I will definitely be in line for those movies. Anyone else think that Paul Rudd is "that guy" who appears in

Anyone else think that Paul Rudd is "that guy" who appears in most of the movies out of the whole crew (i.e. Rogen, Hill, Segel, Hader, that canadian guy from Undeclared and Knocked Up, etc.)?
