Judd Apatow Might Make Another Spin-Off from 'This Is 40'


Spoiling the film for everyone who hasn't seen it yet, Judd Apatow has revealed that his children manage to survive to the end of This Is 40, and now he might make a movie just about them, too.

Just as he found Pete and Debbie to the be more interesting characters of Knocked Up explore, Apatow now thinks the couple's daughters--his real life kids, Maude and Iris--would be the ideal subject for a future spin-off that would watch the girls mature into beautiful young women and/or dangerous sociopaths, depending on what direction he takes the script. Speaking to Getty (via), Apatow explained:

"I like that series Truffaut made where he visited the same character five different times in five different movies, and I think it's fun to see people grow up. So I'm interested in it with Leslie and Paul, but even more so with Maude and Iris. I think it's fun that we met Maude when she was eight years old, and she didn't understand where babies came from, and then we see her five years later, and she's just cursing and screaming and having teenager problems. And maybe in the next one she's in college, so, you know."

Sure, I know. As I've learned in my own life, the possibilities are endless when you start from not understanding where babies come from.
