The film will be directed by Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein, who are also writing the script.

The movie, set to be shot this summer on the East Coast, marks Kohn and Silverstein's directorial debut. The plot is being kept under the wraps, reports Variety.com.

And this summer will bring another Amy Schumer-led blockbuster to the silver screen. Schumer is set to star alongside the legendary Goldie Hawn in Snatched, which will hit theatres in May.

The film marks Hawn's first movie in over a decade, with her last credit being 2002's The Banger Sisters alongside Susan Sarandon.

While all of these film projects are exciting new ventures for Amy Schumer, they continue to jeopardize the future of her TV series.

Inside Amy Schumer ran for four seasons on Comedy Central while Schumer was growing in popularity and notoriety.

Trainwreck was released in the break between Season 3 and 4, forcing Schumer to cut the "man on the street" before putting the entire series on hiatus.

While Season 4 of Inside Amy Schumer still continued to delight, it's unclear if and when Schumer will return to the small screen again.

Despite being renewed for a fifth season, Schumer has decided to take a break from her sketch show, instead focusing on projects like films, her book, and her recent Netflix comedy special Amy Schumer: The Leather Special.

The actress still maintains that Season 5 will happen, but there are no active plans for her to return to the series that helped make her a household name.
