STXfilms bought the distribution rights on May 25. Michelle Williams, Rafe Spall and Emily Ratajkowski have been cast in “I Feel Pretty.”
Schumer starred opposite Goldie Hawn in Fox’s comedy “Snatched,” which has grossed $45 million domestically, and will next be featured in Universal’s “Thank You for Your Service” from director Jason Hall. She had been attached to star in Sony’s “Barbie” before committing to “I Feel Pretty.”
Sony has not yet re-cast “Barbie,” which is also still on the schedule for June 29. New Line’s comedy “Tag” is also scheduled for release on that date along with an untitled Fox animated comedy. Universal is releasing “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” on June 22.
