A romantic comedy starring Melissa McCarthy and Jon Hamm from Bridesmaids director Paul Feig and Judd Apatow? Deadline, who announced that Feig and Apatow made a deal with Universal, may warn us that nothing’s been hashed out and we’re way, way early in the pre-production process but we’re making it official: this has to happen. You can’t let us imagine a film about the funniest guy in Bridesmaids falling for the funniest women in Bridesmaids, and not make it. If either star decides not to do the film, they’ll have to replaced by a robot that gives everyone in the audience candy or we’ll be heartbroken.
Little about the plot has been revealed, aside from that the guy gets “obsessed” with the woman, and that it’s “unconventional.” While normally we’d be worried the film would be full of cheap, monotonous “HIM with HER???” jokes, if anyone can do it right, it’s the guys who made Freaks & Geeks. Hopefully everyone associated with the project will confirm their involvement so we can just relax already.
