Judd Apatow’s latest flick, ‘This is 40’, has been marketed as the “sort-of sequel” to his 2007 hit ‘Knocked Up’. Although Seth Rogen and Katherine Heigel don’t appear in the latest installment, we follow their friends portrayed by Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann as they turn 40 years old.

While promoting ‘This is 40’ in the U.K, Apatow commented that he was interested in making a third installment in the series. Apatow and Mann’s real-life children, Maude and Iris, appeared in both ‘Knocked Up’ and ‘This is 40’, and he believes a third film would be a great vehicle for his oldest daughter to star.

“When we first met Maude’s character, Sadie, she was 8-years-old, she didn’t understand where babies come from and now we see her five years later and she’s just cursing and screaming and having teenager problems so I’m thinking that maybe in the next one she’s in college…,” Apatow said in an interview with Getty (via HeyUGuys).

Apatow also referenced the work of Truffaut, a French filmmaker that famously directed a series of movies that followed the character of Antoine Doinel at various stages of his life.

‘This is 40’ didn’t do very well critically, and Apatow currently has made projects for both TV and film on the go. We’ll see whether Maude/Sadie’s journey to college ends up being the focus of a future film… the good news is, no decisions need to be made today. Maude is only 14.
