This could be quite a fearsome duo. Jennifer Lawrence let slip during an interview with the New York Times that she and new bud Amy Schumer are currently writing a comedic screenplay, and both plan to co-star in it. “We play sisters,” Lawrence told the NYT. “We’re almost done writing. It just flowed out of us. We’ve got about 100 pages right now.”
She added, “Amy and I were creatively made for each other. We have different flavors. It’s been the most fun experience of my life. We start the day off on the phone, laughing. And then we send each other pages. And we crack up. I’m flying out tomorrow to see her in Chicago. We’ll write a little bit with her sister, Kim, who worked with Amy when she was writing ‘Trainwreck.’”
Lawrence said she met Schumer after seeing Trainwreck. The Hunger Games star said she emailed Schumer telling her ” ‘I’m in love with you’ ” and the rest is history.
Schumer retweeted the Times story this morning.
