Knocked Up was clearly not enough for
Judd Apatow and
How I Met Your Mother's
Jason Segel. The pair's now teaming up for yet another comedy:
Five-Year Engagement, which follows the relationship between Segel's character and his fiancée for... yes, five years.
According to Variety, the flick promises to be a couples' comedy, with a raw humor that Apatow fans can likely anticipate already. Writer-director Nick Stoller explains, "It's definitely an extension of our desire to explore the depth of human misery."
But before the Engagement we'll see another Stoller-Segel collabo, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, which also stars Kristen Bell. Stoller describes Engagement by comparison, saying, "If Sarah Marshall and Jason's character had stayed together, this might be the sequel." - Anna Dimond
