In January, TheHollywoodReporter announced that Judd Apatow’s next feature directorial effort would be an untitled project for Universal Pictures from SNL comedian Pete Davidson focusing on a very personal story which could cover the death of Pete’s firefighter father on 9/11 when he was 7 years old.
Davidson, currently one of the high-profile players on Saturday Night Live who is coming off the Sundance debut of the comedy Big Time Adolescence, wrote the script with Apatow and Dave Sirus and will star in what is being described as a semi-autobiographical story of Davidson growing up in Staten Island, New York.
It sounds like the project might be a mix of comedy and drama, not unlike The Big Sick which was also based on true life events.
HN Entertainment has learned that filming on the untitled project is expected to begin late May and will wrap mid-August in New York City, New York.
We also recently revealed that Judd is expected to co-write and direct a comedy starring the Lucas Brothers after this Pete Davidson project, also planning to film in New York City.
Universal Pictures has yet to give the film an official release date.
