“This is Forty” was spun off from Apatow’s blockbuster comedy “Knocked Up,” and follows the relationship of married couple Pete and Debbie (Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann). If you recall, Debbie is the sister of Katherine Heigl’s character and her relationship with Rudd was a cornerstone of the film, providing a good amount of humor away from the main plot point. In “Knocked Up” we witnessed the couple’s ups and downs as Debbie suspects Pete is cheating on her, only to later discover that he’d just been meeting his buddies for fantasy baseball. By the end of the movie, the two had appeared to have reconciled and were celebrating the birth of Heigl and Seth Rogen’s baby at the hospital.
Fox is joining returning castmembers Jason Seigl (who played Rogen’s friend) and Charlyne Yi (the stoner girlfriend on the couch). We haven’t heard yet if fellow friend Jonah Hill will be coming back, or if Rogen will make an appearance. It’s safe to say that Heigl won’t be anywhere near the set.

“This is Forty” is scheduled for a June 1, 2012 release.
