Judd Apatow Set To Direct a New Comedy For Netflix

Judd Apatow is the latest A-list filmmaker to jump on board the Netflix bandwagon and direct an original comedy for them. He also will produce the untitled comedy and co-write the script with Pam Brady (South Park).

The story follows a group of actors and actresses “stuck inside a pandemic bubble at a hotel attempting to complete a film.” Netflix is apparently fast-tracking the project and they will be meeting with actors in the weeks to come. They are looking to assemble an all-star ensemble cast that could rival Knives Out or The Disaster Artist.

I’m personally just not interested in watching a movie set during a COVID-19 pandemic. I’m already living it and I really have no desire to watch anything that reminds me of the hellscape that we are living in right now. But, obviously, some filmmakers have been inspired by it.

This will be the first film Apatow directs that isn’t being produced by Universal Pictures, which is the studio who has backed him on all of his film projects since his break-out comedy The 40-Year Old Virgin in 2005. Some of the other films they’ve made together include Knocked UpTrainwreck, and The King of Staten Island.

According to the report, “Apatow’s move to Netflix had more to do with the timeliness of the project and how Netflix is able to finance it now as Universal figures out how it manages its slate in these new challenging times.”

Does a film project like this sound interesting to you? Are you open to watching films and TV shows that are inspired by the current pandemic that we have found ourselves living in?
