She’s making the leap from successful stand-up and TV series writer/star to film lead this summer. And Amy Schumer already has her eye on a future project: she’s aboard to co-write and star in a new comedy that has Paul Feig attached to produce.According to The Hollywood Reporter, the project is being kept quiet since it’s still at a relatively early stage, but the trade mag has heard that it finds a mother and daughter on a holiday that goes horribly, hilariously wrong. Katie Dippold (who wrote The Heat for Feig to direct and is working with him on the new Ghostbusters) was responsible for the original draft of the script. Schumer will now adapt it for her voice, writing alongside her sister Kim Caramele, who regularly serves as a producer on her show. While Feig is currently only set to produce the new comedy, »

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.”
Shumer – who is set to mathe jump to the big screen this summer in the Judd Apatow-directed Trainwreck – will write the new movie alongside her sister Kim Caramele, reworking an original script from Katie Dippold “to put the main character in Schumer’s voice.” Feig himself will serve as producer, presumably mixing his duties with directing the upcoming female-led Ghostbusters reboot.

Amy Schumer partnered with Judd Apatow for this summer’s “Trainwreck,” and now she’s set to team with another big name in comedy for another feature film: She’s making a movie to be directed by Paul Feig, who helmed “Bridesmaids” and this summer’s “Spy.” The new film will be an action-comedy akin to Feig’s “The Heat” and will follow a mother and daughter trapped in a vacation gone wrong, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Schumer will star in the movie and co-write the script alongside with her sister, Kim Caramele. Schumer has been making waves in Hollywood lately with her Comedy Central sketch comedy series and with a hosting duties at the MTV Movie Awards. Time magazine gave her a place on its “100 Most Influential People” list this year. Many of her sketches have struck a refreshing chord with female viewers, especially last month’s “Girl, »

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.

With Trainwreck seemingly poised to become the breakout comedy of the summer, Amy Schumer is basking in a whole lot of attention from major studios right now. The Inside Amy Schumer comedienne has just signed on to co-write and star in a mother-daughter comedy for 20th Century Fox, with Bridesmaids director Paul Feig producing.
No actress is attached to take on the other lead role yet, but Schumer will portray a daughter whose vacation abroad with her mother takes a drastic turn. The pic is being described as an action-comedy in the vein of the Feig-directed buddy cop comedy, The Heat.
Interestingly, Schumer is penning the script with real-life sister Kim Caramele, who has previously written episodes of Inside Amy Schumer. They’ll be revising an earlier draft by Katie Dippold in order to put the comedy in Schumer’s distinctly bawdy, culturally savvy voice. Dippold, who also wrote episodes »

The year of Amy Schumer continues: The buzzing comedian is set to write and star in a mother-daughter comedy for Fox, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Paul Feig is attached to produce, making this her third collaboration with a big-name comedy dude. (Her latest film, Trainwreck, is directed by Judd Apatow, and she has an HBO comedy special directed by Chris Rock out later this year.) The film, co-written by Schumer and her sister Kim Caramele, will be based on a script reportedly about "a mother-daughter duo trapped in a vacation gone wrong." No word yet on if Schumer is playing the mother or the daughter. But at 33, it's a miracle Hollywood doesn't think she's too old to play either. »

When the collaboration between Amy Schumer and Judd Apatow was announced, there were a lot of folks with negative reactions towards both performers. The trailer for Trainwreck ended up being pretty funny and looks to be a solid addition to Apatow's brand of comedy. Now, Schumer is teaming with another divisive director in Paul Feig. Feig has been the subject of a lot of fanboy angst related to his all-female Ghostbusters reboot. But, like Apatow, you cannot argue with Feig's »

Written and Directed by Paul Feig.
A desk-bound CIA analyst volunteers to go undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent diabolical global disaster.
Martin Scorsese has Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert DeNiro, Tim Burton has Johnny Depp, and Paul Feig has Melissa McCarthy. Some actor/director combinations fit like a glove, and for the third straight outing (Bridesmaids and The Heat) we have another success with Spy.
Unexpectedly, there is also an admirable amount of unexplored range channeled from Melissa McCarthy, not portraying the sassy, loudmouthed, obscene character right out of the gate that we have grown accustomed to. Instead, she plays Susan Cooper, a CIA field operative assistant of 10 years with low self-esteem that decides to jump into the heart of the action when her good friend Bradley Fine »
