Jennifer Lawrence And Amy Schumer Co-Writing Screenplay To Star As Sisters
Lawrence tells the New York Times, “We’re almost done writing. It just flowed out of us. We’ve got about 100 pages right now.” The Oscar winner didn’t provide any plot details aside from revealing they will play siblings.
Lawrence and Schumer became fast friends earlier this year, and were seen vacationing together earlier this month. “I emailed her after I saw Trainwreck and said, ‘I don’t know where to get started. I guess I should just say it: I’m in love with you,’” recalls Lawrence. “We started emailing, and then emailing turned to texting.”
And the texting turned into a summer trip, where they “really hit it off, to say the least” (see photo above). As for working together, Lawrence shares, “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,” continues the actress. “We’ll write a little bit with her sister, Kim, who worked with Amy when she was writing Trainwreck.” Lawrence actually broke the news of their movie to the Times without first telling Schumer she was “spilling the beans.”
Lawrence says at the end of her interview, “Let me just text Amy and tell her that I told you,” revealing she asked her new collaborator if it was “okay” that she confessed the big secret. Schumer, ever the comedienne, jokingly wrote back, “That you’re gay? Totally! It’s exciting!” TELL US: What do you think of Lawrence and Schumer teaming up for a movie?
