The Hollywood Reporter confirmed the 25-year-old "Saturday Night Live" star is teaming up with Apatow on the director's first movie since "Trainwreck" (2015).

The untitled film is being developed at Universal Pictures, with executive vice president Erik Baiers to oversee the project. Production is slated to begin in May or June.

Deadline said the movie is inspired by Davidson's own life, including the death of the actor's father, a firefighter, on 9/11.

The actor and comedian co-wrote the script with Apatow and Dave Sirus.

The film is expected to have similarities to "Trainwreck," which Apatow crafted for actress and comedian Amy Schumer.

"Trainwreck" allowed Schumer to play a version of herself using material from her own life.

Davidson joined "SNL" in 2014, and will also appear in the upcoming movies "What Men Want" and "Going Places."
