In case you missed it, Jennifer Lawrence and comedienne Amy Schumer are recent BFFLs. And we freaking love it!
Whether they’re vacationing on a lake or dancing on Billy Joel’s piano or writing a script together, these two seem to be two peas in a pod having the time of their lives. Yup, that’s right– WRITING A SCRIPT TOGETHER.
Jennifer Lawrence talked about it with The New York Times a couple weeks ago:
“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.”
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.’”
We’re really excited about this!
First of all, Jennifer Lawrence is a funny person who has yet to really be funny on screen. She’s had some quirky, funny character moments, but they were in mostly serious movies. She’s never had the chance to do a full-on crazy, raunchy comedy. Judging by her interviews alone, can you imagine how great that would be?! It would be GLORIOUS!
We’re excited that Amy Schumer is involved too! We recognize she’s a controversial figure because she likes feminism and dislikes guns, triggering asshats to grumble “Murica!” and hate on her, but let’s stick with the comedy. The lady is funny! She’s plays a snarky, hilarious everywoman with ease. Seeing her play Jennifer Lawrence’s sister on-screen sounds like an absolute ball.
The final reason is purely speculative and perfect: Bette Midler heard about the project and wants to play their mom. WE NEED THIS. DESPERATELY.
Now that The Hunger Games is long done with filming (*sniffleweepsob*), we need to see the cast involved with awesome new projects. It’s what keeps up going!
