is continuing her film career with “I Feel Pretty” from rom-com writing team Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein. The logline for “Pretty” is under wraps, but considering Schumer’s debut with “Trainwreck” and Kohn and Silverstein’s credits (“Never Been Kissed“, “He’s Just Not That Into You“, “How to be Single”), it’s likely the film will be a romantic comedy.

Schumer co-produced “Trainwreck” and will also produce “Pretty”, which only makes sense with Schumer’s visibility as a comic. It’s also logical that the producers would capitalize on Schumer’s fame and the success of “Trainwreck” to market “I Feel Pretty” as exclusive by keeping its plot under wraps. However, the secrecy could be due to how early in the process the film is currently at. The film is due to shoot on the East Coast this summer, so it may debut in 2018. Whether the filmmakers continue their clandestineness as the film progresses will become apparent in the coming months.

The most notable lies Rachel Crowe has ever told were that she has 10 children (no twins), she’s running a marathon retracing the path her ancestors took to evade the IRS and that she found childcare for 10 on a Saturday night. She’s also a stand-up comedian and dog walker living in Los Angeles. Follow Rachel on Twitter @Racheddar or on Instagram @thelma_and_disease. Or don’t, but at least appreciate those fresh hot puns.
