Amy Schumer looks to have landed her first post Trainwreck staring role, as she and her sister rework a script from the writer of Sandra Bullock/Melissa McCarthy box office smash, The Heat.
According to THR, Schumer is working on the project about a mother and daughter who are kidnapped while on holiday in Brazil. They're apparently looking at big names for the Ma role - Meryl Streep big - but it all depends on the director that comes on board.
The movie doesn't have a title as of yet, but Schumer responded to the plot and reworked the script with her sister, Kim Caramele from an initial draft by Katie Dippold. The Heat's director (and he of the new Ghostbusters) Paul Feig is producing the project.
Trainwreck broke $30 million in its opening 3 days at the American box office, and Schumer is also riding high on her Comedy Central show, Inside Amy Schumer, which is now in its third season.
She's smart taking her time with her next film and even smarter writing it.
