Amy Schumer Has a Whole New Outlook on Life in I Feel Pretty First Look

Amy Schumer is rocking serious confidence in her new movie.

The Trainwreck and Snatched actress next stars in I Feel Pretty — and PEOPLE has an exclusive first look! The movie follows Schumer as an insecure woman who suddenly believes she is the most beautiful and capable woman on the planet after waking up from a fall.

I Feel Pretty marks the directorial debut for writing partners Marc Silverstein and Abby Kohn, who are best known for writing romantic comedies like He’s Just Not That Into You and How to Be Single. The two tell PEOPLE why Schumer was the perfect fit for the role.

“Amy’s comedic genius — a word we do not use lightly — made her an obvious, perfect fit for this role and our ultimate dream casting for Renee,” the directors tell PEOPLE in a joint quote.
