Following her turn in The A.V. Club’s favorite TV show of 2013, Laura Dern has turned her attention to another monolithic force that she can tear down from the inside: American football. In a comedic fashion, that is: Variety reports that the Enlightened star and co-creator is developing a yet-untitled big-screen comedy with Judd Apatow, the focus of which is “obsessive female football fans.” Conceived by Dern, the movie was scripted by Team America: World Police co-writer and South Park hand Pam Brady; early reports do not indicate the involvement of any foul-mouthed puppets and/or animated elementary schoolers. Though, given the subject matter, we wouldn’t rule out an appearance by the 1989 Denver Broncos.
