Here's Everything We Know About Amy Schumer's Next Big Comedy Movie
We're starting to feel an Amy Schumer void: The season-three finale of "Inside Amy Schumer" has come and gone. We've obviously seen (and loved) "Trainwreck." So what's a Schumer lover left to do — besides YouTube clips of her hilarious stand-up routines?
Soak up every single detail about her next big comedy movie, currently in the works at Fox. Here's what we know so far, courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter.
It's a comedy about a mother and daughter kidnapped while on vacation in Brazil. That basic description leads us to believe Schumer is moving into action-comedy territory with this next project — because when has a kidnapping plot ever not involved some thrilling action?
The script originally came from The Heat's Katie Dippold. Dippold originally based the script on her own relationship with her mother. Schumer reworked the script with her sister, Kim Caramele.
Paul Feig is producing, along with "Spy" and "New Girl" (among many others) producer Peter Chernin.
Schumer will play the daughter role, and big name actresses are being eyed to play her mother. Frances Conroy, Sally Field, and Meryl Streep are all on the wish list. Let's all just take a second to imagine an Amy Schumer-Meryl Streep pairing.
And the project still needs a director. In the running are Warm Bodies' Jonathan Levine, The Inbetweeners' Ben Palmer, Year of the Dog's Mike White, Little Miss Sunshine's Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, and Broad City's Lucia Aniello
Fox wants shooting to start before the end of the year. And so do we. The sooner we get another Amy Schumer movie in our lives, the better.
