Billy Eichner To Write And Top Line Upcoming Judd Apatow Romantic Comedy

Posted by at 1:05 pm on February 6, 2019

Billy Eichner has signed on to write and star in an untitled romantic comedy from power-producer Judd Apatow and director Nick Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall). Eichner’s film will follow two men who have commitment problems and are attempting a relationship, making it a first, a major studio released rom-com with two gay characters as the central story line.

Apatow will produce Eichner’s movie under his Apatow Productions banner, while Stoller will produce via his company Global Solutions. The project serves as a reunion between Eichner and Stoller, who cast the actor in a small role in Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising before working together on Stoller’s Netflix series Friends from College. This new film comes on the heels of last week’s announcement that Apatow’s next directorial effort will be a Universal comedy starring Pete Davidson of Saturday Night Live fame.

Eichner has a pair of Disney movies on the horizon, as not only does he voice lovable meerkat Timon in Jon Favreau‘s remake of The Lion King, but he stars opposite Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader in the Christmas comedy Noelle, which is expected to debut on Disney+. He was recently seen on the eighth season of Ryan Murphy’s FX anthology series American Horror Story: Apocalypse.
