Amy Schumer jokes how she has been having secret meetings with fellow female comedian Melissa McCarthy, who recently starred in the hit film ‘Spy’, and at the ‘Lady Meetings’ they discuss how this is their summer. Amy joked how this summer they were going to take over and will push the men out of the comedy genre.
"We've been having secret meetings. Lady Meetings," Amy Schumer said. "And we're like, 'Yeah, this is our summer. We're going to take over and push the men out!'"
‘Trainwreck’ director Judd Apatow previously directed the hugely successful 2011 film ‘Bridesmaids’ both economically and critically. According to Apatow the current rise in female centered comedies is the fruit of ‘Bridesmaids’.
Apatow shared how it may have taken a few years to catch up but finally he has a movie this summer and the director of ‘Bridesmaids’ Paul Feig also has a movie coming out this very summer which is female centered (Ghostbusters Reboot). Therefore Apatow and Feig are carrying the torch of female comedies forward in Hollywood.
‘Trainwreck’ will be released on the 17th of July and will also star Bill Hader opposite Amy Schumer. Apatow recently wrote a book ‘Sick in the Head’ where he blames Hollywood studios for the lack of female comedies.

Apatow believes the studios are not ready to accept female driven comedies and Studios only know how to make films about perfect and petite females. However ‘Trainwreck’ is about a bawdy, hard-drinking, take-charge woman who starts pursuing a romantic relationship albeit reluctantly at first as she is a hot mess. Amy has held nothing back about the reality of women and shared she is just getting started in the industry.
