Leslie Mann and Paul Rudd to Reprise Knocked Up Roles 2011-01-06 22:36:52

Leslie Mann and Paul Rudd to Reunite For Apatow's Next Comedy

If you're a Knocked Up fan like I am, then I have full confidence that you'll share my excitement in this bit of news. Leslie Mann and Paul Rudd are set to reprise their roles as Debbie and Pete, a couple that's almost too comfortable in their marriage (Mann played Katherine Heigl's sister in the film). Mann's husband, Judd Apatow, will be penning the script and directing the comedy, which is set for a Summer 2012 release. The rest of the other details are vague, but I'm already excited that Apatow is taking a page out of one of his bigger comedies after a serious turn with Funny People. This also means that Apatow and Mann's real-life kids (who starred as Debbie and Pete's precocious daughters in Knocked Up) are likely to make an appearance as well, but here's the real question: will there be roles for Katherine Heigl and Seth Rogen?

Why can't they just hire Linda Cardellini? She was awesome in Freaks and Geeks and part of the original Apatow crew. I agreed with Katherine Heigl. Her character in Knocked Up was the stereotypical, too uptight, humorless woman.

For Seth Rogen? I can only hope and pray there is a part for him. For Katherine Heigl? It would probably be too sexist for her, but hey that didn't stop her the first time when she did it for the money; whether she isn't in it because of herself or Apatow, I could not be more pleased.

Methinks Heigl might not be invited back after that whole nonsense? ;)
