Michelle Williams has joined Amy Schumer’s upcoming comedy I FEEL PRETTY. Williams will play Avery LeClaire, the stunning cosmetics company boss to Schumer’s Renee Bennett.

STXFilms has acquired the film in Cannes. A Voltage Pictures and Wonderland Sound & Vision production, the film is written and directed by Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein, which marks their directorial debut for the duo.

I Feel Pretty follows Renee Bennett (Schumer) who knows what it’s like to be average in a world of genetically blessed. After falling off an exercise bike and banging her head, she believes a spell has suddenly made her gorgeous. Except to everyone else, she looks exactly the same. Renee’s new confidence suddenly sees her climbing the ranks at the cosmetics company she works for, getting the respect of her idol and boss, Avery LeClaire (Williams). Ultimately Renee realizes “the spell” has lifted, but through the process learns true beauty is not skin deep.

Production begins in July on the East Coast.

Schumer will also produce alongside Wonderland’s McG and Mary Viola, with Voltage’s Alissa Phillips, Dominic Rustam and Nicolas Chartier. Kevin Kane, a frequent collaborator of Schumer will co-produce. Justin Bursch and Jonathan Deckter will executive produce.

Williams was seen in last year’s Manchester by the Sea. Currently she’s shooting Ridley Scott’s All the Money in the World, and recently finished filming The Greatest Showman, the story of P.T Barnum, founder of the famous traveling Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus.
