Bill Hader Eyes Leading Role in Judd Apatow’s Trainwreck


Bill Hader is, according to a story today at Variety, eyeing a leading role in Judd Apatow’s upcoming Trainwreck opposite the previously-announced Amy Schumer.

The comedy, from a script written by Schumer and developed with Apatow, will be produced through his Apatow Productions alongside Barry Mendel (Bridesmaids, This Is 40). Plot details are being kept secret at the moment, but the film is slated to hit the big screen on July 24, 2015.

Hader, best known for his work on “Saturday Night Live,” voiced the lead character in last year’s Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 and can be seen coming up in director Craig Johnson’s comedy drama The Skeleton Twins, starring opposite fellow “SNL” alumn Kristen Wiig.
