There isn't a lot of info being given away on backstage.com about the film or the relevance of the band to the rest of the plot, but we do already know a few things:

  • According to an Elle interview, Trainwreck is an R-rated story about a woman working for a men's magazine. Speaking of her self-written character, Amy says:

I'm just at that cross roads of not being a kid anymore. My behavior isn't that cute anymore, it's kind of catching up with me.

  • Bill Hader will be playing the love interest, rounding out a cast that includes LeBron James, Vanessa Bayer, Tilda-mutherfucking-Swinton and Method Man.
  • It is currently filming in NYC. Right now. New Yorkers, you have a unique opportunity to stumble upon the set and take lots of pictures and send them to us. Do not fail us.
