more from the Apatow gang

this may be overkill to some but i am OK with it.

Apatow, Stoller, Hill & Brand Reunite for Greek

Forgetting Sarah Marshall director Nick Stoller is reteaming with Judd Apatow for the comedy Get Him to the Greek, with Jonah Hill and Russell Brand attached to star, reports Variety.

Stoller has been tapped to write and direct the film, which centers on a fresh-out-of-college insurance adjuster (Hill) who is hired to accompany an out-of-control rock star (Brand) from London to a gig at L.A.'s Greek Theater. (i've totally been there!)

Hill and Brand played supporting roles in Universal's "Sarah Marshall"; Stoller made his feature directing debut on the pic. Stoller is co-writing and will direct the comedy Five-Year Engagement for Universal, with Jason Segel co-writing and attached to star. He and Segel are also collaborating on a new Muppet movie for Disney.
