Who is ready to get Knocked Up again?
This Is 40, starring Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann, is being noted as the "sort-of" sequel to 2007’s Knocked Up. The official trailer has been released, and according to E!, Mann and Rudd reprise their roles as the comedic married couple from the series which starred Katherine Heigl and Seth Rogen. This Is 40 costars Megan Fox, Melissa McCarthy, Chris O’Dowd and John Lithgow.
Directed and written by Judd Apatow, This Is 40 brings Jason Segel back for more “inappropriate comments,” E! notes.
40 brings Pete and Debbie back five years ahead of their Knocked Up characters. Mann becomes "body eccentric," comparing her breasts to that of Fox’s character. Albert Brooks stars as Rudd’s father, who informs Rudd, “Your mother wanted to abort you.”
The film is set to hit theaters December 21. Heigl and Rogen will not be reprising their roles in the film.
