FilmoFilia has gotten their hands on the first official production photo from “Funny People.”
The story in the film is inspired by Judd Apatow‘s own real life experiences.
Over the past few years, writer/director Judd Apatow has shown that nothing-not even losing your virginity or the miracle of childbirth-is sacred. About his third film behind the camera, he says, “I’m trying to make a very serious movie that is twice as funny as my other movies. Wish me luck!” When seasoned comedian George Simmons learns of his terminal, inoperable health condition, his desire to form a genuine friendship cause him to take a relatively green performer under his wing as his opening act.
The film is both written and directed by Judd Apatow (40 Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up) and stars Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen, Leslie Mann, Eric Bana, Jonah Hill, RZA, Aubrey Plaza and Jason Schwartzman.
“Funny People” will be released this summer on July 31st, 2009.
