Judd Apatow is producing another movie. This time, he will lampoon the celebrity charity do-gooders.
Sort of like the comedic equivalent of Scott Rudin, getting Judd Apatow to produce your film is a stamp of approval most writers and filmmakers would kill for. This year, Apatow will find his named attached to a handful of highly anticipated comedies including “Bridesmaids,” the Paul Rudd/Jennifer Aniston vehicle “Wanderlust” as well as the soon-to-be-lensing collaboration between Nicholas Stoller and Jason Segel, “Five Year Engagement.” But the ever busy writer/director/producer has added another project to his growing slate.
THR reports that Apatow is throwing his weight behind “Do Gooders.” Written by Alex Gregory and Peter Huyck (”King Of The Hill,” the upcoming ensemble comedy “A Good Old Fashioned Orgy”) plot details are being kept on the down low, but the comedy will center on actors who are looking to help those in need. It’s a pretty rich premise so it’ll be interesting to see what the filmmakers cook up in the Apatow lab.
