Amy Schumer has signed on to star in I Feel Pretty, a comedy from McG’s Wonderland Sound & Vision and Voltage Pictures.
Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein, the writers behind How to Be Single and He’s Just Not That Into You, wrote the script and will make their directorial debut with the comedy.
A summer shoot on the East Coast is being planned. The logline is being kept under wraps.
In a first, Schumer will also be a producer on the project. Also producing are Wonderland’s McG and Mary Viola, along with Voltage’s Alissa Phillips, Dominic Rustam and Nicolas Chartier.
Kevin Kane, a frequent collaborator of Schumer, is onboard as co-producer.
Voltage snagged the project in a closely guarded, yet competitive situation and then quickly attached Schumer. Phillips brought the project in for Voltage. Jonathan Deckter will exec produce for Voltage.
Voltage will finance the film and also handle international distribution rights at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival. UTA and Voltage will handle the domestic rights sale.
Schumer next stars in Snatched, a Fox comedy that pairs her with Goldie Hawn. The movie opens May 12. She is repped by UTA, Carrie Byalick of B. Company, and Schreck Rose.
