Billy Eichner is going to be featured in two upcoming Disney movies, the reboot of The Lion King and Noelle, he made an appearance in American Horror Story: Apocalypse and had a four episode arc in season 2 of Netflix’s Friends From College. Suffice it to say, the three-time Emmy nominee has been killing it lately – and he’s not slowing down.
The latest project from Eichner was announced in an exclusive press release from Deadline yesterday afternoon, and get ready folks because it’s a BIG ONE! Billy is going to write and star in his own romantic comedy.
Excited, terrified, completely in shock and PROUD as hell to announce this movie. We’re making a big, new romantic comedy for Universal!!!! AHHHHHHH!!! t.co/JO8qk5jKvL

The project doesn’t yet have a title and we don’t have a ton of details, but a few things are certain. The film is going to be directed by Nick Stoller (Neighbors, Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and produced by Judd Apatow (Knocked Up, The 40-Year-Old Virgin) so whatever it’s going to be called, it’s got an amazing team of rom-com veterans behind it and sure to be a ton of fun.
And perhaps most exciting of all, it’s a story centred around two gay men. This is a monumental step in the right direction for romantic comedies, because as we all know – representation matters.
We couldn’t be more thrilled for Billy, and we’ll be waiting eagerly by our computers for the ticket presale!
