Having taken some time to figure out what he wanted to do to after This Is 40, Judd Apatow has now decided to direct new comedy Train Wreck, which will star American comedienne Amy Schumer, who will also write the script. Apatow previously joined the project as a producer but is now helming the project, too.

Amy SchumerGiven his eye for spotting talent ( is responsible for giving talents like , and their big breaks), it's no surprise he's working with Schumer on Train Wreck, whose career got a boost this year when she scored her own show on US channel Comedy Central, Inside Amy Schumer.

She'll be playing a "basket case who tries to rebuild her life", and Apatow is apparently now searching for people to play her boyfriend, a best friend, and one of her parents.

How does Apatow and Schumer's Train Wreck sound to you? I'm confident that it'll be a hit like 's female-led Bridesmaids, but whatever happens, it had better be good - because otherwise the negative reviews will be all over that movie title!
