Amy Schumer, Paul Feig teaming up for new action-comedy

Inside Amy Schumer

More Amy Schumer? Yes, please!

It seems like the comedian is finding more fans in the movie world as her comedy Trainwreck is set to open in theaters this summer, but that hasn’t stopped her from bagging another project with one of the top comedy directors working today.

The Hollywood Reporter broke on Friday that Schumer would be teaming up with Bridesmaids and the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot director Paul Feig on an action-comedy that she would write and star in.

She would be working with her sister, Kim Caramele. The two will be reworking an initial script written by The Heat and Ghostbusters scribe Katie Dippold to put the main character in Schumer’s voice. Feig is not attached to direct the project, and is listed as a producer so far.

According to THR, the plot is being kept under wraps but sources say it is an action-comedy in the vein of Feig’s The Heat and centers on a mother-daughter duo trapped in a vacation gone wrong.

Schumer is set to lead Trainwreck, which she wrote and is directed by Judd Apatow, this summer and also stars Bill Hader. This is her first movie project after that movie with her work on her television series, Inside Amy Schumer, coming before or after the script work.
