Universal Sets Next Judd Apatow Release For June 1, 2012

EXCLUSIVE: Judd Apatow is on the clock for the next comedy he’ll write, produce and direct. Universal has set a June 1, 2012 release date for an untitled film Apatow is writing right now. Aside from his prolific output as writer/producer, Apatow has made all three of his directing vehicles for Universal: The 40 Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up and Funny People. The first two were big hits and while Apatow took his first critical brickbats for the latter, he’s among a handful of smart writer/directors you want to watch evolve as a filmmaker.
