Reuters – Comedian Amy Schumer pulls double duty as the writer and star of her new film “Trainwreck”. Edward Baran reports.
Comedian Amy Schumer pens a comedic tale of love, sports and family in her first outing as a screenwriter for “Trainwreck”.
In the film, Schumer’s character, who plays a magazine writer, finds herself falling in love with the subject of a profile piece she is writing, after living a life of promiscuity.
Comedy ensues as she learns how to adapt to romance and balance her family life.
“I think this movie is kind of a love letter to my sister and the way that I realize that I was hurting myself and being destructive was by falling in love.” Actress Tilda Swinton is almost unrecognizable in the movie as Schumer’s boss.
“I wanted to do something different, so I wanted for start, to have a sort of tandoori tan, I think that was the start.”
“Trainwreck” hits U.S. theatres today.
