Billy Eichner Giving the Gay Rom-Com the Judd Apatow Treatment Is a Huge Deal
Billy Eichner will write and star in a gay romantic comedy from Judd Apatow’s production company for Universal Pictures. “Neighbors” and “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” director Nick Stoller is set to direct and co-produce under his banner with Apatow Productions, Global Solutions. The as yet untitled project will be the first major studio movie with an Lgbtq lead since last year’s “Love, Simon,” and the first such project geared towards adult audiences since Paramount’s “In & Out,” which was released in 1997.

“Excited, terrified, completely in shock and Proud as hell to announce this movie,” Eichner wrote on Twitter announcing the project. “We’re making a big, new romantic comedy for Universal!!!! Ahhhhhhh!!!”
