Judd Apatow to direct Train Wreck

Written by and starring Amy Schumer

Having taken a little time out after This Is 40, Judd Apatow seems to have made his mind up over his next project, with THR  reporting that he is set to direct new film Train Wreck.

Written by and starring comedian Amy Schumer, fresh from receiving her own show on Comedy Central, the film will follow a troubled young woman trying to steer her life back on to the rails.

Apatow is currently immersed in the casting process, with the director thought to have met with a number of actors in LA throughout November.

Reportedly up for grabs are roles as Schumer’s boyfriend, parents and a best friend / co-worker. And presumably a part for Leslie Mann somewhere too…

A shoot is likely to take place next year, ahead of a probable release date in 2015. Good job too, since that year is currently looking pretty quiet…

Are you looking forward to Apatow's next project? Tell us, below!
