She can sell out theaters across the country and she’s got a hit show on Comedy Central, so it was only a matter of time before a powerful Hollywood movie producer snagged Amy Schumer for the big screen. And who better to do said snagging than Judd Apatow, the reigning king of breaking big-screen comedy talent? Schumer is writing a script for a flick in which she’ll star, according to Deadline. Apatow will produce through his Apatow Productions. And although it’s in the early stages — and the film could never see the light of day — I’d be shocked if this Apatow/Schumer joint isn’t brought to fruition.
The comedian’s show, Inside Amy Schumer (watch below) was renewed for a second season earlier this year. Ten new episodes will begin rolling out in 2014.
