Knocked Up and This Is 40 helmer Judd Apatow has decided on his next film as he has signed on to direct Train Wreck, which already has Amy Schumer attached to star, according to THR.
Schumer will play ‘a basket case who tries to rebuild her life, but still to be found are her boyfriend, a best friend/co-worker and a parent.’
She may not be particularly well known, but Apatow must have confidence in her, especially as this is the film movie he’ll direct that he didn’t also write. Judd is currently seeking actors to play the her boyfriend, best friend/co-worker and one of her parents. He has apparently met with actors in Los Angeles for these parts, while Amy Schumer and producer Barry Mendel are also holding casting sessions in New York.
Schumer is best known for her hit Comedy Central series Inside Amy Schumer. She has also appeared in films such as Sleepwalk with Me, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World and Price Check.
