Anne Hathaway has signed on to star in Judd Apatow‘s "40-Year-Old Virgin" follow-up, a comedy in which she’ll be appearing alongside a handful of "Virgin" veterans.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Anne Hathaway is joining the cast of Universal Pictures’ "Knocked Up." The actress, who most recently played Jake Gyllenhaal‘s icy wife in "Brokeback Mountain," is set to star opposite Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann in the Judd Apatow romantic comedy. Apatow is writing, producing and directing the movie, which follows a twentysomething guy who finds out he impregnated his one night stand. The picture will be similar in budget to his last film, "The 40-Year-Old Virgin," which grossed $109.5 million at the domestic boxoffice and garnered a WGA nomination."

In addition to his work on "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" and the short-lived yet adored TV shows "Undeclared" and "Freaks and Geeks," Judd Apatow also wrote the movies "Heavyweights," "Celtic Pride," and last year’s remake "Fun with Dick and Jane."
