Judd Apatow's New Comedy 'King Of Staten Island' Has Us Excited

In a world bereft of its usual bonanza of new options to occupy our time comes a bright speck of light on the horizon.

Judd Apatow - director of Trainwreck, Knocked Up, The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Funny People - has a new movie out next month.

It's titled 'The King of Staten Island' and has an eye-catching cast featuring Bill Burr, Marisa Tomei and Steve Buscemi. Star of the feature is Saturday Night Live's Pete Davidson.

It was written by Apatow, Davidson and Dave Sirus.

According to Universal Pictures:

Scott (Davidson) has been a case of arrested development ever since his firefighter father died when he was seven. He’s now reached his mid-20s having achieved little, chasing a dream of becoming a tattoo artist that seems far out of reach. As his ambitious younger sister (Maude Apatow) heads off to college, Scott is still living with his exhausted ER nurse mother (Tomei) and spends his days smoking weed, hanging with the guys — Oscar (Ricky Velez), Igor (Moises Arias) and Richie (Lou Wilson) — and secretly hooking up with his childhood friend Kelsey (Bel Powley).

But when his mother starts dating a loudmouth firefighter named Ray (Burr), it sets off a chain of events that will force Scott to grapple with his grief and take his first tentative steps toward moving forward in life.
