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.
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.”
