Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence Are Writing and Starring in a Movie Together
Say hello to the newest comedy duo: Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence. According to The New York Times, Schumer and Lawrence have teamed up to write a comedy together for the big screen, which they also plan to star in. “We play sisters,” Lawrence told NYT. “We’re almost done writing. It just flowed out of us. We’ve got about 100 pages right now.” And in case you needed any proof that Lawrence and Schumer are real life BFFs:
She continued, “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.”
Ms. Lawrence said that she only met Ms. Schumer a couple of months ago.
“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,’” she recalled. “We started emailing, and then emailing turned to texting.”
Schumer and Lawrence’s friendship kicked off this summer, and they were spotted jet skiing together earlier this month.
