Up until now, not a whole lot has been known about Judd Apatow’s upcoming film Funny People. We did know that Adam Sandler and Jason Schwartzman were joining Apatow regulars Seth Rogen and Jonah Hill as a group of standup comedians. From the trailer below, it looks as if there might be a little more drama in Funny People than in his previous films. If Apatow is looking to expand the scope of what type of movie he makes, more power to him. Hopefully, he can keep some of the plotlines shown in the trailer from coming off as too mawkish or sugary sentimental.
But the big question is will fans welcome the shift in tone or be disappointed?
Funny People hits screens July 31.
