After a burst of production activity that saw Judd Apatow taking a producer’s credit on Drillbit Taylor, Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Pineapple Express, he’s making plans to return to the director’s chair.

Variety reports that Apatow has committed to direct and write an untitled comedy for Universal and Sony, and though he’s “keeping the plot under wraps,” he’s already acquired the acting services of Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen, and Leslie Mann.

The project continues an Apatow tradition of working with familiar faces — both Sandler and Rogen are longtime associates, and Mann is his wife. Sandler’s involvement comes on the heels of You Don’t Mess With the Zohan, which he co-wrote with Apatow and Robert “For Me to Poop On” Smigel. The cast is all busy outside the Apatow umbrella, however; as Variety notes, Sandler is currently shooting Adam Shankman‘s Bedtime Stories, while Mann is starring opposite Zac Efron in 17 Again and Rogen will soon be heard in Horton Hears a Who.
