Jennifer Lawrence Teases Plot Of Her "Funny, Dirty, Real" Movie With Amy Schumer

Over the summer, the Twittersphere flew into an excited fury when it was revealed that Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer were combining forces to write a screenplay together. What would they conjure up? For a while, we were only left to imagine what they were putting down on the page, but a couple of months have passed, and they’ve laid down the foundation for the project.

“We just finished a new draft, and we’re just excited about it,” Schumer told Access Hollywood recently. “It’s funny, it’s dirty, it’s real. It’s like us.” And Lawrence has followed up with ET with a little tease about the plot.

“Yep! It’s is all of those things,” she said, confirming Schumer’s description of the tone of the picture in which they’ll play sisters. “Amy, in this movie, she has it very together. It’s her lifelong dream to be a flight attendant. She works at the airport. And I’m a mess.”

It sounds like a chance for Lawrence to really go for it in a broad comedy, and the creative process with Schumer seems to be going smoothly. “We both have very similar senses of humor, obviously and aren’t afraid, which is a good and bad thing, because I don’t know what our movie will be rated,” she said. “And we’re both very blunt. So we’ve gotten through a really strenuous process without ever fighting, because we’re both very straightforward.” 

So, let’s hope this doesn’t just get tossed in a drawer, and that the pair keep hammering this one out. You’ll see Lawrence next in every cinema across the country in “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2.”
