Both as a writer/director and a producer, Judd Apatow's been remarkably reliable the past few years; even his "smaller" films—like the underrated Funny People—have been well worth checking out. Hitfix has the news that Apatow's next film will be a continuation of sorts from Knocked Up, focusing on two of that film's best characters: Pete and Debbie, the married couple played by the fantastic Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann.

Apatow says:

It is just a story from Pete and Debbie's current life.

People really responded to their characters and problems. I felt like there was a lot of ground I could explore with them, so we'll be shooting in July and will come out the following June.

I like this idea, 'cause I love Rudd and Mann, and those characters—both on their own and as older foils to Seth Rogen and Katherine Heigl's characters—were great. Plus, if Apatow's gonna sequel-ize things, the tactic that worked so well for Get Him to the Greek (which was kinda sorta was a sequel to Forgetting Sarah Marshall) should work great for Knocked Up, too. Better that than just doing something like Knocked Up Again.
