Leslie Mann & Paul Rudd To Reprise Roles in New Apatow Film
You weren’t the only one who thought Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann had amazing chemistry when they appeared together in Knocked Up. The studio has confirmed to TheWrap.com that the two will reprise their roles as married characters from the popular 2007 film in Judd Apatow’s next comedy, currently scheduled for a summer 2012 release. The film will start production later this month.
Given Apatow’s history with both actors, it’s not surprising that they are set to return to the big screen together – Mann is married to Apatow and has appeared in all of his films, while Rudd has appeared in several comedies produced by him. As for those hoping for a further Knocked Up reunion, while there is currently no word on whether stars Katherine Heigl and Seth Rogen will reprise their roles in Apatow’s new film, never say never.
As much as I loved Katherine Heigl and Seth Rogen, Leslie Mann and Paul Rudd were the two highlights of the film for me and I cannot wait for them to return to the screen together!
