Leslie Mann to Star in a Comedy by 'Hangover' Writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore

Leslie Mann just signed on to star in an upcoming comedy produced by her husband Judd Apatow. According to Deadline, Mann will star in an untitled R-rated comedy written and directed by The Hangover's Jon Lucas and Scott Moore. Not much is known on the plot of the film other than it being a "female-driven" story about "women and the challenges of motherhood." Production begins this summer in New York. Mann has appeared in several Apatow films (Knocked Up, Funny People, This Is 40) and next hits the big screen in the Vacation reboot, which is slated to premiere in theaters this July.

'21 & Over' Is the Latest Movie to Ask "What If 'The Hangover' Were About Young People?"

Here's the trailer for 21 & Over, a new comedy written and directed by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore. It's the first movie the duo has directed, but they also wrote (the original draft of) The Hangover, The Change-Up, and, um, Ghosts of Girlfriend's Past. The story follows a trio of college kids out celebrating their most responsible members' 21st birthday right before his medical school entrance exam. It's like The Hangover, but with young people. Or like Project X or Superbad but with slightly older people (and more vomit and racism).
