If you’ve seen even a little bit of her Comedy Central series, you already know that Amy Schumer one of the funniest actresses on the small screen. Now she’s poised to take over the big screen as well, as the writer and star of Judd Apatow‘s Trainwreck.
Schumer plays a woman who’s utterly allergic to commitment. Actually, “commitment” seems like too strong a word — based on the Trainwreck trailer, she doesn’t even like getting to the second date if she can help it. Enter a handsome doctor played by Bill Hader, who threatens to upend her life.
The supporting cast is equally stellar, with Vanessa Bayer and Lebron James(!) as Schumer and Hader’s supportive pals, Tilda Swinton as Schumer’s boss, and much much more. Watch the first Trainwreck trailer after the jump.
Update: A Trainwreck red-band trailer has also hit, with more raunchy jokes. Plus, a new poster and new stills — see it all below. Read More »

The prospect of Amy Schumer writing and starring in a feature film is awesome. Her script Trainwreck is being directed now by Judd Apatow, with a set of co-stars that includes Bill Hader, Brie Larson, and Tilda Swinton. I’ve got no doubt that she’ll carry the role like a champ — her brutally funny show Inside Amy Schumer has been one of Comedy Central’s best new offerings, and shows more than enough to know that she could be one of the next great comedy stars. The first image has shown up from the set of Trainwreck, and you can find it below. Read More »
No matter what you think about Judd Apatow‘s movies, you can’t deny he pulls in a lot of stars for each one. Even The 40 Year Old Virgin, his first movie, is packed with major stars in even the smallest roles. (Sure, at the time, some may not have been that big, but that also demonstrates his eye for talent.) He’s apparently doing the same thing with his next movie, Trainwreck, written by and starring comedy darling Amy Schumer. Apatow recently revealed NBA mega star Lebron James would appear in the movie along with legendary rapper Method Man. Read More »
The latest episode of Inside Amy Schumer includes an incredible parody of a faux Aaron Sorkin television series The Foodroom.
In the latest drama from Aaron Sorkin, the manager of a fast food restaurant defends his old-school ways against the increasing pressure to offer healthy options.
The Good Wife/Sports Night star Josh Charles plays J.J. MacAhoy, a patriotic fast-food restaurant manager. Amy Schumer plays a fast-food employee who has a realization that echos a common complaint about Sorkin’s The Newsroom. Watch Aaron Sorkin’s The Foodroom television parody embedded after the jump.

It felt like the end of an era when Bill Hader left Saturday Night Live last year, after eight seasons on the show. But there’s no need to worry that he’ll fade into obscurity. He’s kept himself plenty busy since then, and has now booked his juiciest post-SNL gig yet. Hader is in talks to join Amy Schumer in Trainwreck, the next comedy being directed by Judd Apatow.

Though many were mixed on Judd Apatow‘s latest film, This Is 40, it didn’t diminish our interest in what the filmmaker has going on next. It seems the director of The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up has now decided to direct a film he previously was only attached to produce.

Even by Comedy Central’s R-rated standards, comedian Amy Schumer‘s show, Inside Amy Schumer, is dirty. It’s also hilarious, provocative and more than a little offensive to potentially every group out there. It’s not what you’d expect from the sweet-looking comedian, which is exactly why Universal Pictures has optioned an untitled script by Schumer. Judd Apatow, king of the R-rated comedies, is along to produce the project. Read More »
