This is Judd Apatow’s first directing job since 2009’s Funny people. Watch the trailer above. Are you excited?
From writer/director/co-producer/key grip/ferret handler Judd Apatow comes This Is 40 — the highly (?) anticipated (?) sequel to 2007’s Knocked Up.
Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann, and Jason Segel are joined by Melissa McCarthy, Megan Fox, Charlyne Yi, Albert Brooks maybe?, IMDB says Lena Dunham is in this, Chris O’Dowd I’m hoping, and John Lithgow.
Here’s a synopsis, if you’re into that sort of thing:
Apatow’s first directing effort since 2009′s “Funny People” – picks up with the family a few years after “Knocked Up.” Pete’s music label is struggling and Debbie’s vanity business, a dress shop staffed by the comely Desi (Megan Fox) and the awkward Jodi (Charlyne Yi), needs to help cover the household budget.
In theaters this Christmas.
