Paul Feig and Amy Schumer teaming for mother-daughter action comedy

05.22.2015

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 box office numbers on movies like BRIDESMAIDS and THE HEAT.

The Hollywood Reporter says that Schumer and Feig will collaborate on a mother-daughter comedy. Schumer will write and star while Feig will produce and direct. The film is said to be an action-comedy along the lines of THE HEAT and will see the main characters trapped during some sort of vacation gone wrong.

I don't get the hate for Schumer who has proven herself to be pretty funny on her Comedy Central series and is capable of holding her own with male comics. TRAINWRECK will be her first true test as to whether she can handle a big screen leading role. Plus, seeing Feig work with someone other than Melissa McCarthy will be a nice change of pace. With that in mind, who would be a good actress to play Schumer's mother?

TRAINWRECK opens on July 17th.

I I'm more excited for Paul Feig to be not making another Melissa McCarthy movie (even though I generally think Melissa McCarthy is talented, Tammy notwithstanding). Amy Schumer is funny. At least I think she's funny, and so do a lot of my friends. This will hinge largely on who they get to play the mom, but while I'm on the fence with the whole Ghostbusters debacle, I generally think Paul Feig is a good director. It says something about Schumer that she's got the "Freaks and Geeks" guys to

Good for each other

I'm really not a fan of either of these people. I can't exactly explain it but there seems to be a form of smugness about both Amy and Paul. They both seem to think they are funnier than they actually are. To each their own though, I hope they prove me wrong one day. But who knows maybe I'm just being sexist??

She's "capable of holding her own with male comics"? How generous of you...

Good Grief Feig

I like Melissa McCarthy, but Amy Schumer is not funny, I have tried to watch her show. She tries too hard like Chelsea Handler. Hey we get it... you're a girl who can be "funny", they should have Tina Fey who is way funnier than Amy and better looking to watch. Go home Paul you're drunk
