Universal Pictures has announced a new romantic comedy is in the works titled Bros, starring Billy Eichner, the first openly gay man to co-write and star in his own major studio film. The movie will be released on Friday, August 12, 2022, opening against a currently untitled live-action Disney movie.
Next summer, Universal Pictures proudly presents the first romantic comedy from a major studio about two gay men maybe, possibly, probably stumbling towards love. Maybe. They’re both very busy.
From the ferocious comic mind of Billy Eichner (Billy on the Street, 2019’s The Lion King, Impeachment: American Crime Story) and the hitmaking brilliance of filmmakers Nicholas Stoller (the Neighbors films, Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and Judd Apatow (The King of Staten Island, Trainwreck, The Big Sick), comes Bros, a smart, swoony and heartfelt comedy about finding sex, love, and romance amidst the madness.
The film is produced by Judd Apatow, Stoller, and Joshua Church (co-producer Trainwreck, Step Brothers). The film is executive produced by Eichner.
