Jennifer Lawrence & Amy Schumer Writing Screenplay

The news that Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer are collaborating on a screenplay is the talk of the town in Hollywood.

When Jennifer Lawrence met with an interviewer to discuss her final stint as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games franchise, talk turned to a different subject.

Jennifer, 25, revealed that she will be collaborating with funny lady Amy Schumer, 34, to create a comedic screenplay. And the even better news is that they plan to star in it together too!

“We play sisters,” Jennifer said. “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 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."

When photos emerged of the pair this August holidaying together, the Internet went into a frenzy! Jennifer revealed how the pair hit it off:

“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 said. “We started emailing, and then emailing turned to texting.”
