Judd Apatow’s Trainwreck may have a fairly little known name at its centre – Amy Schumer – but the director is ensuring there are more interesting names around her. Already cast are Bill Hader, Brie Larson and Colin Quinn.
Now the likes of THR, TheWrap & Variety reports he’s court loads more actors, including recent Oscar nominee Barkhad Abdi, comedian Mike Birbiglia, Girls’ Jon Glaser, SNL’s Vanessa Bayer, WWE superstar John Cena, Perks of Being A Wallflower’s Ezra Miller and the superlative Tilda Swinton. It’s certainly an eclectic but interesting mix.
It’s not known who they will play, but that’s not too much of a surprise as Apatow has been keeping his cards close to his chest about this one, other than that it’s about ‘a basket case who tries to rebuild her life’. It’s also known a best friend/co-worker and a parent play a major role.
It’ll be in cinemas July 2015.
