If you’re taking a stroll around Boston’s South End next week, you just might run into Amy Schumer—and a ton of camera crew members.

The comedian and actress is heading to the Hub in August to film scenes for her upcoming comedy “I Feel Pretty.” According to a flyer recently sent out to residents, shooting for the movie will take over Tremont Street between Union Park and W Brookline Street on Monday, Aug. 7.

Starting at midnight that day, the area will be cleared so production vehicles can find parking, while filming is scheduled to take place between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m.  A catering truck will be parked at St. John’s Church on Union Park Street as well.   

Although organizers haven’t revealed the exact locations, scenes will be shot at a pair of restaurants in the area. The production will also return to Boston on Aug. 18 to film additional scenes at a store located on Union Park Street. 

Written and directed by “How to Be Single” scribes Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein, “I Feel Pretty” reportedly revolves around a woman who starts acting extremely confident in herself after suffering a serious head injury. Model Emily Ratajkowski and actress Michelle Williams, who recently earned an Oscar nod for her work in the Bay State-set drama “Manchester by the Sea,” will join Schumer in the flick, which is eying a summer 2018 release date.

The “Trainwreck” star’s latest comedy isn’t the only big movie setting up shop in Boston this summer. Production for the upcoming superhero blockbuster “X-Men: The New Mutants” brought “Game of Thrones” actress Maisie Williams and “Stranger Things” actor Charlie Heaton to town earlier this month. It sounds like Arya Stark and Jonathan Byers had a good time in the city, as they were spotted sharing a meal with a few other pals in the North End.
