Untitled Pete Davidson Comedy (2020, D: Judd Apatow)

Judd Apatow has set his next feature film, an untitled comedy that will star Saturday Night Live castmember Pete Davidson. It will reflect a storyline that mirrors the comic’s own life, including his firefighter father on 9/11. It’s Apatow’s first film since Trainwreck, a vehicle crafted for Amy Schumer.

Davidson has a lot of potential, and even more baggage. A whirlwind romance with Ariana Grande led to a high profile engagement and an equally high profile breakup. Davidson separately drew the ire of conservatives when he poked fun at the eyepatch of former SEAL turned Republican congressman Dan Crenshaw, who lost his eye in an explosion in Afghanistan. Davidson subsequently sent out a tweet that indicated he might be considering harming himself.

All in all it has been a rocky year for a talented young man, whose appearances on Weekend Update have largely been standout good. Being able to turn his energy into a comedy by Apatow, who helped make stars of Steve Carell, Schumer and many others, will be an important next step for Davidson, who wrote the script with Apatow and Dave Sirus.

Davidson appears in Big Time Adolescence, which premiered yesterday at Sundance.

Apatow and Barry Mendel will produce. Universal Executive Vice President of Production Erik Baiers will oversee production on behalf of the studio. Davidson is repped by Brillstein Entertainment Partners and ICM, Apatow is repped by Mosaic and UTA.

I wonder if Davidson can carry a 147-minute comedy?

He can’t do 2 minutes on SNL, so I’m guessing no.

I'm guessing that the most expensive thing in the budget will be the insurance.

This. He mus resonate with young millenials or Gen Z... because I don't find him remotely funny. Adam Sandler circa 2012 is funnier.

I can just about see the release title for this being "untitled Pete Davidson movie." Can't imagine how big a bomb this will be...

Woh, woh, woh, stop. You mean to tell me he’s going to actually do something finally? I’ll believe it when I see it.

It pays to be on SNL and you might not be the funniest person but you can get roles in films just by being on the show.

He killed on that Rob Lowe roast a couple of years ago

We bash him while he takes Kate Beckinsale to a hotel.

“I don’t like that she talked all that s— for my penis,” Davidson joked in January.“Everything is huge to her,” he continued. “Why would she tell everyone that I have a huge penis? So that every girl who sees my d— for the rest of my life is disappointed.”



He's right. Ariana Grande is a miniature woman. An average size dick is probably too big for Ariana to handle.

I find Pete to be a funny guy. I think he will do well. He cracks funnier jokes than many DvdTalkers.

He is occasionally funny but not that funny to get all of this hot poon or Jim Gaffigan should be pulling FDA Grade A Hotties too if he was not married.

Jim Gaffigan doesn’t have a 12 inch sub.
