Amy Schumer To Star In Mother/Daughter Action Comedy Produced By Paul Feig

Amy Schumer To Star In Mother/Daughter Action Comedy Produced By Paul Feig

It would probably be incorrect to call Amy Schumer comedy’s next great talent, because she already is one. She has already conquered stage and television, the latter medium thanks to the hit “Inside Amy Schumer,” and this summer she tests her movie wings with Judd Apatow‘s “Trainwreck.” But confidence around Hollywood is strong as she’s got another high concept vehicle in the works.

THR reports that Schumer will write and star in a mother/daughter action comedy movie for Fox. Paul Feig will produce the film that apparently is in the same spirit as his movie “The Heat,” and perhaps that’s not surprise, considering screenwriter Katie Dippold penned this first draft of this new project. She’ll stay on as a producer, while Schumer and her sister, Kim Caramele, rewrite the script that apparently involves a vacation gone wrong.

It sounds like broad stuff, but let’s hope that it retains Schumer’s comedy style, though since she’s now putting her pen to the movie, it probably will. And if “Trainwreck” is a success this summer, this is probably only the beginning of comedy projects landing on Schumer’s doorstep.
