Amy Schumer has been making her rounds lately, with her recently released film, Trainwreck, her frequent appearances on various comedy shows, and her popular television series, Inside Amy Schumer.

Schumer is known for her feminist, sex positive comedy that is able to attract both males and females alike.

Trainwreck was just released last week, and so far has been a box office success.

Now, talks of a new film by Schumer have been spreading across Hollywood. Still unconfirmed, the film could feature Meryl Streep as Schumer’s mother.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the studio and producers, Paul Feig and Peter Chernin, first have to decide on a director before the actors are cast.

Schumer’s script was received in the studio in mid-July, and a shortlist of directors was quickly drawn up to include, Jonathan Levine, Ben Palmer, Mike White, Jonathan Dayton, Valerie Faris and Lucia Aniello.

Feig and Chernin have also been brainstorming possible actresses for the role of Schumer’s mother. Not only is Streep a viable choice, but Sally Field and Frances Conroy are also possibilities.

Now, fans can only anticipate a potential new film by Schumer herself – one that we hope includes the iconic Streep.
