Let’s face it. Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer are already starting to remind the rest of us of some of the greatest female duos of all time, from Lucy and Ethel to Thelma and Louise. It all started with that one little Lawrence-Schumer vacation, but now the new besties are inspiring and entertaining fans on both sides of that partnership. It seems only fitting then that Amy and Jennifer should bring their bond to the screen.
The New York Times ArtsBeat reports that Lawrence and Schumer have been collaborating on a screenplay for a comedy and the best part is that Lawrence and Schumer will co-star in it.
“We play sisters,” Ms. Lawrence said. “We’re almost done writing. It just flowed out of us. We’ve got about 100 pages right now.”
Like true best friends, Lawrence and Schumer spend almost every waking moment enjoying each other’s company, whether they’re just chatting or working on their new project.
“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.”
Although it might seem otherwise to the rest of us, Ms. Lawrence reveals that the new friendship she shares with Schumer didn’t begin as spontaneously as it appears. In fact, Jennifer confesses that she was quick to email Ms. Schumer.
“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.”
Upon responding to questions about the vacation that really pulled their friendship into the public eye, Ms. Lawrence reveals that it was that getaway that really helped them bond as friends, reported CNN.
“We really hit it off, to say the least.”
“Let me just text Amy and tell her that I told you,” Lawrence said, as she texted Schumer during the interview.
“I wrote, ‘I just spilled the beans to The New York Times. Is that O.K.?'” Ms. Lawrence said. “And Amy wrote back, ‘That you’re gay? Totally! It’s exciting!'”
