Judd Apatow Tells the Story of the Movie He Almost Made with Ben Stiller, Brad Pitt, and the Rolling Stones


Judd Apatow appeared on MTV's Pioneers series this week, and here's a clip from the interview in which he tells the story of a comedic Rolling Stones concert movie he wrote with Ben Stiller in the early 90s that would have starred Stiller, Brad Pitt, Andy Dick, and of course, the Rolling Stones. It sounds unbelievably crazy. They should just make that thing now just like they're doing with Apatow's Simpsons script from the early 90s. I can't imagine any difficulties involved in raising a big enough budget to pay Stiller, Apatow, Pitt, and the Stones and to put on a live concert, all while keeping Andy Dick restrained.
