The Jennifer Lawrence–Amy Schumer friendship that almost broke Twitter with its awesomeness just got even better. In an interview with The New York Times, J. Law revealed that she and Amy Schumer are currently writing a screenplay! And it gets better: They plan to star in the movie together, playing sisters.
Lawrence told the N.Y.T. reporter,
We play sisters. We’re almost done writing. It just flowed out of us. We’ve got about 100 pages right now.
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.
Turns out The Hunger Games star was a big fan of Amy’s summer movie. Lawrence goes on to explain that she emailed Schumer after seeing the moving, writing, “I don’t know where to get started. I guess I should just say it: I’m in love with you.” The rest is history…and probably comedic gold.
J. Law had to warn Amy that the cat was out of the bag, and Amy, of course, couldn’t respond with anything serious.
I wrote, ‘I just spilled the beans to The New York Times. Is that O.K.?’ she said. And Amy wrote back, ‘That you’re gay? Totally! It’s exciting!’
New. Favorite. Movie.
