Universal’s untitled comedy directed by Judd Apatow and starring and co-written by “SNL” star Pete Davidson has received a release date of June 19, 2020.
Universal also dated the thriller “The Turning,” based on a Henry James novella, for release on Jan. 24, 2020.
Apatow and Davidson co-wrote the untitled film with Dave Sirus, and it will begin production this summer in New York City.
This is Apatow’s sixth feature and his first since the 2015 Amy Schumer comedy “Trainwreck.” He’ll also produce for his Apatow Productions alongside Barry Mendel.
“The Turning” is a haunted house thriller from DreamWorks Pictures and is an adaptation of Henry James’ landmark novella. Directed by Floria Sigismondi (“The Runaways,” “The Handmaid’s Tale”), the film stars Mackenzie Davis, Finn Wolfhard, Joely Richardson, and “The Florida Project” breakout Brooklynn Prince.
“The Turning” takes audiences to a mysterious estate in the Maine countryside, where newly appointed nanny Kate is charged with the care of two disturbed orphans, Flora and Miles. She quickly discovers that both the children and the house are harboring dark secrets and things may not be as they appear.
Chad and Carey Hayes (“The Conjuring”) and Jade Bartlett wrote the screenplay. “Turning” is produced by Roy Lee and Scott Bernstein. Universal will release the film wide domestically and in select international territories.
