Laura Dern is teaming with Judd Apatow on an untitled female-driven ensemble comedy set in the world of obsessive female football fans. Aptaow will produce for Universal Pictures via his studio-based Apatow Productions alongside Dern and Barry Mendel, and Erik Baiers will oversee for Universal. The idea was conceived by Dern — who is great in the upcoming Reese Witherspoon-starrer Wild — and the script was penned by South Park‘s Pam Brady. No details yet on the plot.
