The cast of Amy Schumer’s new comedy, I Feel Pretty, is starting to come together. The movie, which initial reports were intentionally vague about, centers on a woman (Schumer) who goes from being wracked with insecurities to moving through life with all the confidence of a beautiful woman, after either injuring her head or falling under a spell (but definitely not from just ignoring the media and learning to love herself on her own terms or anything. Wait, did we just give away the ending?). In any case, the Schumer character will work hard to impress her boss, who will be played by Michelle Williams, both before and after her sudden spike in assertiveness.

Additionally, Deadline reports that Emily Ratajkowski, of Gone Girl and We Are Your Friends, has signed on in some unknown role. But the publication’s follow-up does indicate that the central character ends up feeling both “beautiful” and “capable,” because apparently, competence is also just a concussion and/or ritual away. I Feel Pretty is being written and directed by Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein, who have some experience working on films about self-delusion and life-changing head trauma.
