Apatow's next is...?!

03.10.2008

As I was preparing some FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL stuff the other day, I was thinking about all the things Judd Apatow is producing and wondering when the guy would get back to directing. I can wonder no longer. Apatow has set up his next directorial effort at Universal and Sony (where all of his productions come from) and has set Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen and Leslie Mann to star. While I'll always be pumped about a film written and directed by Apatow, I do worry that this new film will be more of an Adam Sandler film than a Judd Apatow film. The past two of Apatow's films worked, in part, because of the underdog nature of their star (although both Steve Carell and Seth Rogen have become huge stars since that time). As of now, Apatow is keeping the plot of the comedy under wraps. Apatow and Sandler recently teamed up for the script to the upcoming Sony comedy YOU DON'T MESS WITH THE ZOHAN. Sandler is currently filming Disney's BEDTIME STORIES while Rogen recently wrapped Kevin Smith's ZACK AND MIRI MAKE A PORNO. As for his producing efforts, Apatow has SARAH MARSHALL, DRILLBIT TAYLOR and PINEAPPLE EXPRESS all due later this year.

Extra Tidbit: Apatow and Sandler were roommates while they were starting as stand-up comedians.

I bet Apatow will work to sandler's skill... in a less stupid way but a more artistic emoional way like pta mastered with punch drunk love. i think apatow including the poster of michel gondry's eternal sunshine and his taste of music in knocked up he seems to be more serious and have an eye for stuff.. Adam is gonna be great in this... IN JUDD I TRUST

*Clicks on link, sees pic of Judd Apatow*

WHY GOD WHY!!!????

Seriously, Judd Apatow is not gonna let this turn to shit. The only reason Adam Sandler's movies have been sucking is because of the shitty directors themselves. Sandler + Apatow already seems like an attractive proposition to me.

please don't turn this into an adam sandler type of comedy!

with the exception of The Wedding Singer and The Longest Yard...the rest of his movies have nothing but unfunny, a 40 year old man acting childish doesn't sit in anymore.
i guess there's hope with rogen and apatow
