The 'Euphoria' actress will play Davidson's onscreen sister in the comedy directed by her father, Judd.

Pete Davidson's upcoming Universal comedy is a real family affair, with Maude Apatow joining the cast as Davidson's onscreen younger sister.

The project will see Apatow team with her father, Judd, who is directing the project from a script he wrote with Davidson and Dave Sirus.

Set to shoot this summer in New York City, the untitled project has been described as a coming-of-age comedy set on Staten Island. While exact plot details are unknown, the story will use elements from the life of Davidson.

The Assassination Nation actress joins a cast that includes Marisa Tomei, who will play Davidson's mother, Bill Burr and Bel Powley. 

The comedy is due to hit theaters June 19, 2020.

The elder Apatow will produce for his Apatow Productions alongside Barry Mendel, with the two having worked together on The Big Sick, Bridesmaids and This Is 40. Universal’s senior executive vp production Erik Baiers will oversee for the studio.

Apatow, who is repped by UTA and Mosaic, will next be seen starring opposite Zendaya and Storm Reid in HBO's splashy YA drama series Euphoria, out this summer.
