The year of Amy Schumer continues: The buzzing comedian is set to write and star in a mother-daughter comedy for Fox, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Paul Feig is attached to produce, making this her third collaboration with a big-name comedy dude. (Her latest film, Trainwreck, is directed by Judd Apatow, and she has an HBO comedy special directed by Chris Rock out later this year.) The film, co-written by Schumer and her sister Kim Caramele, will be based on a script reportedly about “a mother-daughter duo trapped in a vacation gone wrong.” No word yet on if Schumer is playing the mother or the daughter. But at 33, it’s a miracle Hollywood doesn’t think she’s too old to play either.
