Wonderland Sound and Vision’s McG and Mary Viola will produce with Voltage Pictures’ Alissa Phillips, Dominic Rustam and Nicolas Chartier. Schumer will also produce. Kevin Kane, a frequent collaborator of Schumer will co-produce. Jonathan Decker executive produces for Voltage.

I Feel Pretty follows an ordinary woman who struggles with feelings of insecurity and inadequacy on a daily basis 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?

Adam Fogelson, STX Films Chairman said:

“Amy is a spectacularly talented comedienne and actress and this story could not be more perfectly suited to her incisive observational skills and humor. We are excited to be working with her and we love adding I FEEL PRETTY to STX’s growing list of female-driven comedies. Abby and Marc are among my favorite comedy screenwriters working today and they have a fantastic vision as directors for this film.”

I Feel Pretty begins production this July in Boston.
