Before she makes us laugh with BFF Jennifer Lawrence and on-comeback-mode woman Goldie Hawn, Amy Schumer is going to take a turn to the serious. Er.
I mean, her comedy is serious. I dunno why people have to belittle her day job (just a tad...think about it) to say the woman’s doing a drama.
Which she is.
The Emmy winner is going to co-star in Thank You for Your Service, a Miles Teller-led new film from American Sniper screenwriter Jason Hall, who will be popping his cherry as a director with the project.
The plot will revolve around a group of U.S. soldiers coming home from Iraq, who struggle to reintegrate back into their regular civilian lives and with the memories of war.
Thank You for Your Service will be based on the 2013 David Finkel novel, and co-star It up-and-comer Haley Bennett, Secret In Their Eyes’ Joe Cole, The Last Saint’s Beulah Koale, Child of God’s Scott Haze, and Oscar nominee Keisha Casthle-Hughes (HBO’s Game of Thrones), among others.
