Jason Segel has a Five-Year Engagement

The Judd Apatow factory cranks into life…

While he’s suffered a minor setback with Walk Hard, Judd Apatow’s comedy producing output shows no sign of slowing.

He’s just set up a new comedy, Five-Year Engagement, at Universal. The plot - which roughly follows the ups and downs of a couple through, well, five years, obviously. And it’ll star Jason Segel, who is about to be seen in the Apatow-produced Forgetting Sarah Marshall, which he also wrote.

That’s not the only Marshall link – director Nick Stoller will again step behind the megaphone to direct. Given how much fun Marshall looks, this makes us very happy.

Variety has been keeping tabs on it all.
