Paramount Picks Up Judd Apatow-Produced Comedy Starring Leslie Mann

Paramount Pictures has acquired U.S. distribution rights to the currently untitled comedy from “The Hangover” writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore that stars Leslie Mann.

Judd Apatow and Josh Church are producing along with Block Entertainment and Merced Media, with Lucas and Moore writing and directing. Merced Media is fully financing the project; Bill Block and Merced’s Raj Brinder Singh are producing.

Plot details are being kept under wraps. Production begins this summer on the pic, which Paramount has dated for April 15, 2016.

“We are excited to be partnering with Judd, Bill and their teams for this great project,” said Marc Evans, president of Paramount Pictures’ Motion Picture Group. Leslie, Jon and Scott are among the best comedic talents working today, and their combined forces will no doubt make for an incredibly funny movie that the whole team here is excited to be a part of.”
