Judd Apatow's ‘Trainwreck’ with Amy Schumer Gets Summer 2015 Release Date

Universal Pictures has set a July 24, 2015 release date for the new comedy Trainwreck, which stars Amy Schumer and is directed by Judd Apatow. As of now, the movie doesn't have any direct competition, although it is sandwiched between two potential blockbusters, Warner Bros.' Batman Vs. Superman (July 17) and Marvel's Ant-Man (July 31).

We first reported on the project back in November, when Judd Apatow signed on to direct from Amy Schumer's own screenplay, which he helped develop. This project will mark the first time the filmmaker has directed a project he has not written. The story centers on a woman (Amy Schumer) trying to put her life back together. No other cast members have been attached, although our report from November indicates that casting is under way in New York City, with the director seeking actors to play the lead's boyfriend, her best friend and one of her co-workers.

Judd Apatow is also producing alongside Barry Mendel. It isn't known when production will begin. Amy Schumer is best known for her hit Comedy Central series Inside Amy Schumer. She has also starred in movies such as Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, Sleepwalk with Me and Price Check.

Trainwreck was released July 17th, 2015.
