Scoring Judd Apatow to produce your script can be a boon for any writer and actor/scribes Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon have snagged his services. And now Zoe Kazan will co-star in The Big Sick with Nanjiani.

Usually found these days either running his own series The Meltdown or as part of the main cast of Silicon Valley, Nanjiani has based the script on his and Gordon's real-life marriage. The plot of the movie will follow the trials and tribulations that a Pakistan-born man and his girlfriend have to get through to be together.

This one appears likely to be stuffed with reliably funny folk - the director is The State veteran Michael Showalter, who has a few films under his belt, and between him, the writers and Apatow, they have plenty of contacts to fill the rest of the cast.

Kazan, who was last seen in Our Brand Is Crisis, has There Are Monsters and comedy My Blind Brother awaiting release.
