Jennifer Lawrence Breaks News on Her New Screenplay—With Amy Schumer!

Genevieve Fish

Best friends Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer are a match made in comedy heaven. Lawrence’s description of how she met Schumer conveys their dynamic perfectly. “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,’” Lawrence tells The New York Times. Ah, wouldn’t it be nice to wake up to an email like that from Jennifer Lawrence!

Let’s just say we’re thrilled Lawrence dropped the L-word. Since that fateful email, Lawrence and Schumer have officially taken their friendship to the next level—they’ve have put pen to paper (or rather fingers to keyboard) and are writing a screenplay for a film in which they plan to play sisters.

“Amy and I were creatively made for each other,” Lawrence said while discussing the latest Hunger Games movie. “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.”

Shop Inside Amy Schumer for a taste of the laughter that is to come from these two.
