Brie Larson Sticking To Her Comedic Roots By Eyeing Role In Judd Apatow's TRAINWRECK
Variety reports that funny lady Brie Larson could take a role in Judd Apatow's next film Trainwreck. Larson is looking to going back to her comedic roots, after taking more dramatic roles. Her comedic credits include 21 Jump Street, United States of Tara, Community, The League, The Kroll Show and Scott Pilgrim. Apatow has a great eye for female comedians, so having Larson on board is a very good thing.
The film is based on a original script written by Amy Schumer (with notes/suggestions from Judd Apatow), which will see her in the lead role. Judd setup the project at Universal as it's producer, but attached himself as it's director as well. Bill Hader (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Superbad, Knocked Up, Adventureland, Paul, Tropic Thunder) who is a busy person these days will also co-star in the raunchy comedy.
