Amy Schumer, hot on the heels of her hit summer movie, "Trainwreck," may be looking to publish a book.
Publishers Weekly, a trade magazine, reports that the Rockville Centre-raised comedian has hired literary agent David Kuhn to sell an essay collection to New York publishing houses, "according to multiple sources with knowledge of the project."
PW says that insiders believe the book could sell for anywhere between $5 million and $8 million.
"Trainwreck" has grossed more than $107 million domestically as of Sept. 9, according to the website Box Office Mojo. The movie's success, along with the popularity of Schumer's Comedy Central show, "Inside Amy Schumer," has made her a household name.
A representative for Schumer did not respond to Newsday's request for comment.
