Billy Eichner is to star in a gay romantic comedy


Billy Eichner is set to write a script for the gay-themed rom com and to play the leading role in it, as it has been announced. Eichner confirmed the news on Twitter, saying that he has mixed emotions – he is overjoyed but terrified, shocked but extremely proud. “We’re making a big, new romantic comedy for Universal!!!! AHHHHHHH!!!”” he tweeted. The groundbreaking story will be helmed by Love and Girls producer Judd Apatow and directed by Nick Stoller, who has previously directed films like Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Neighbors. Recently there have been several movies with same-sex love storylines to be on work. The majority of those are lesbian-themed, they show female main characters as rom com is believed to be a genre for women and about women, but Eincher wants to challenge this stereotype and to film a male same-sex love story in such a light and funny manner
