Judd Apatow accidentally produces eight more films this week

Uber-producer Judd Apatow (Superbad, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Knocked Up) was recently surprised to learn he has produced eight comedy features since last Thursday, two of which he himself wrote and directed.

“I like to stop by IMDB every once in a while to see my profile. That’s when I saw projects like Blue Balls and Worst Friends,” said Apatow. “I was like, ‘wait a minute, what the hell is going on here?’”

According to the Internet Movie Database, Apatow is producing Blue Balls, Worst Friends, My Crazy Ex-Wife, Damnesia, Rugburn, Suburban Gangsters, Ultradope and Speed Daters.

The only problem is that Apatow doesn’t remember being involved with any of the movies.

“I’m hoping they’re raunchy sex comedies,” he said. “I knew I had a busy few days, but this is borderline ridiculous. Is it possible to write and direct a movie on the same day? I hope so, cause Ultradope is coming out this weekend!

With many in the industry already worried about Apatow stretching his brand too thin, the glut of new flicks has some second-guessing the bold, if accidental, move.

“This reminds of that one year Woody Allen released three identical movies,” said a top studio exec. “But we’re talking about eight days here. I’m all for churning stuff out, but…aw hell, they’ll probably all be good and make a lot of money.”

Apatow is not planning to produce any additional features next week, but he probably will anyway.
