It would seem that Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer are working together on the screenplay for a new comedy.
In an interview with The New York Times, the Oscar-winning actress casually spoke about her comic kinship with Schumer and the ongoing development of their current project. “We play sisters,” Lawrence said about the film’s storyline. “We’re almost done writing. It just flowed out of us. We’ve got about 100 pages right now.”
“Amy and I are creatively made for each other,” she continued. “We have different flavours. 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.”
Amusingly, when Lawrence texted Schumer to ask if it was okay that she has “spilled the beans,” the comedienne retorted: “That you’re gay? Totally! It’s exciting!”
It is unclear when the as-yet-untitled film will hit cinemas, but you can next see Lawrence in the final instalment of The Hunger Games on 20th November. Meanwhile, Schumer’s comedy, Trainwreck, is still screening in the UK.
