Amy Schumer


The release of Anchorman in 2004 sent Judd Apatow off on a producing run that eventually made him the undisputed king of big screen comedy. For a few years there it felt like there wasn’t a comedy in theaters that didn’t have his name attached as the producer, and his efforts helped to launch the careers of a staggering amount of comedic actors. Somewhere along the way he got the reputation of being the head of a boys’ club though. Whether the reputation was deserved or not, Apatow became thought of as a filmmaker solely interested in bringing to life the “bromances” of arrested development-suffering male slackers. Maybe that’s why he’s been making such an effort lately to put together projects that give voice to some of the most talented female comedians out there. Back in 2011 he earned a mountain of success and accolades by helping Kristen Wiig bring her comedy Bridesmaids to the big screen, last year he created a near insufferable amount of buzz helping Tiny Furniture writer/director Lena Dunham develop the show Girls for HBO, and now Deadline is reporting that he’s signed a new deal to help standup comedian and the star of Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer, Amy Schumer, bring her unique brand of depraved material to theaters.
