“SNL” actor Pete Davidson will star in a new comedy being set up at Universal from director Judd Apatow, the studio announced Tuesday. Apatow and Davidson co-wrote the film with Dave Sirus, and the untitled comedy will begin production this summer in New York City. There’s no logline just yet, but THR notes that the film is being described as a semi-autobiographical story of Davidson’s life. Davidson has frequently mentioned on social media, in interviews and in his comedy how he lost his father at age 11 in the Sept. 11 World Trade Center attacks in New York, and that he now often struggles with bipolar disorder and even suicidal tendencies.

Universal EVP of Production Erik Baiers will oversee production on behalf of the studio. Davidson was just seen in the film “Big Time Adolescence,” which made its premiere on Monday at the Sundance Film Festival and is still awaiting a distributor. He currently stars on “SNL” as one of the youngest cast members ever and also appeared briefly in Apatow’s “Trainwreck” and in the 2018 rom-com “Set it Up.” Also Read: Judd Apatow Calls for Expansion of Tucker Carlson Sponsor Boycott Davidson is repped by Brillstein Entertainment Partners, ICM Partners and Josh Sandler.

Pete Davidson joined “Weekend Update” anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che for the “Saturday Night Live” news segment’s first installment of 2019 to do two important things: 1) reassure “SNL” viewers he’s OK after the cryptic suicide threat he made on social media last month and 2) give a film review with John Mulaney. “I’m great,” Davidson told Jost and Che. “As you know, I’ve had a really crazy month and I want to talk about something that matters a lot to me.” “Mental health?” Jost asked. “No, the new Clint Eastwood movie, ‘The Mule,'” Davidson replied. And there to help him open up about the 2018 drama was former “SNL” writer Mulaney, who Davidson has been hanging out with a lot recently.

It is funny though,” he added, while laughing some more. Mulaney then turned to Davidson and said, “Pete, look at me, look me in the eye. You are loved by many and we are glad you are OK. Now back to ‘The Mule.'” Also Read: 'Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' Star Rachel Brosnahan to Host First 'SNL' of 2019 Then Davidson and Mulaney launched into a review of their new favorite obsession: “The greatest, weirdest, most bananas movie ever made about a 90-year-old drug mule.” Davidson appeared for a few sketches Saturday night, including the cold open, in which he played a Clemson football player who manages to end the government shutdown during a game of “Deal or No Deal” with Alec Baldwin’s Trump.

Kate Beckinsale and Pete Davidson may be the hottest new celebrity couple of 2019 — and the internet is already obsessed.
When it comes to singing, no one can belt it out like Ariana Grande — but that’s not all that she's known for. Her style also hits all the right notes and turns heads wherever she goes.
Davidson has received some unexpected support, after posting a troubling message on social media over the weekend.
The singer noted that "sometimes the world is upside down," as she stepped out looking somber in New York City on Tuesday.
2018 saw the end of some of pop culture's most beloved (or simply most talked about) couples.
