Washington (US), February 25 (ANI): American filmmaker Judd Apatow and comedy collective twins Kenny and Keith Lucas are teaming for a semi-autobiographical film for Universal Pictures, which will centre on the siblings' lives as identical twins growing up in New Jersey.

According to Variety, with Apatow set to produce, the Lucas brothers are writing and starring in the film. Jarrad Paul and Andrew Mogel will co-write the untitled movie.
