Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann are to reprise their bickering husband and wife characters from Knocked Up in a new spin-off movie.

The as-yet untitled comedy will be directed by Knocked Up's Judd Apatow and is due out in June 2012, Variety reports.

Knocked Up starred Katherine Heigl and Seth Rogen as a couple thrown together after Katherine's character accidentally became pregnant following a one night stand.

Leslie played her bossy sister Debbie and Paul was Debbie's husband, who was sent to give Seth's wayward character some guidance ahead of becoming a father - only to be lead astray himself.

This is not the first time director Judd has made a spin-off starring his supporting characters.

Forgetting Sarah Marshall saw Russell Brand supporting as Sarah's new rock star boyfriend Aldous Snow, which spawned his lead role in spin-off Get Him To The Greek.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

It feels like friends are few and far between. If you're not getting the help you need, ask why. It may be because you have been so preoccupied with work. Skipping special occasions and failing to return phone calls causes resentment. You have to be more engaged to sustain loving bonds. Call someone you've missed. It may take a few tries, but it's worth the effort. Be forthright about why you have been out of touch. Communication is the cornerstone of every healthy relationship.More
