Lauren Hutton, Adrian Martinez (The Blacklist: Redemption) and Tom Hopper (Game of Thrones) among others have come aboard the Amy Schumer-starring comedy I Feel Pretty. STX is distributing the film, which marks the directorial debut of screenwriters Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein. The release date is June 29, 2018.
The story is about an ordinary woman who struggles with feelings of insecurity and inadequacy on a daily basis and wakes from a fall believing she is suddenly the most beautiful and capable woman on the planet. With this newfound confidence she is empowered to live her life fearlessly and flawlessly, but what will happen when she realizes her appearance never changed?
Others starring include Aidy Bryant and Sasheer Zamata from SNL, Busy Philipps (Vice Principals) and Dave Attell (Trainwreck). They join previously announced cast members Michelle Williams, Emily Ratajkowski and Rory Scovel.
STX acquired the Voltage-financed title out of the Cannes Film Festival for an estimated $15M, one of the fest’s biggest deals. The pic marks the directorial debut of scribes Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein.
