Jonah Hill and Judd Apatow's Pure Imagination Project
Judd Apatow (director of 40 Year Old Virgin and Knocked Up) has become the current powerhouse when it comes to comedies in Hollywood nowadays, both producing and directing. One of Apatow's next projects, not one which he'll be directing but rather only producing, is a comedy starring Jonah Hill (Accepted, Knocked Up, Superbad) called Pure Imagination. And I definitely suggest you read ahead to hear about what exactly this is, because when you hear the concept you might be sold as well.
The details come from MTV who interviewed Jonah Hill.
"It's called 'Pure Imagination,'" he said of the film, in which he'll also star. "Basically, I go through a bunch of traumatic stuff, and I develop an imaginary friend. Then what happens is I meet a girl, and we start dating… but the problem is I don't know whether she [actually] exists [or] whether she's a figment of my imagination."
From the report at MTV, the film will be a bit more ambitious than Apatow's usual fare and might even use some CGI but will still aim to keep human bonds at its core.
"It's basically a relationship movie, but the whole time I'm trying to avoid finding out whether she's real or not," Hill explained. "I don't want to know, basically. And then, my best friend who I go to for advice, is an imaginary person that I've made up in my mind."
Sounds promising and I'm excited! I really think Apatow and his comedic crew knows how to churn out some hits, and I hope he continues to do so. The film will start production sometime next year.
