If you pay a wee bit of attention to how your favorite celebrities are spending their summer vacations, you may have noticed that Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence have struck up a bit of a summer friendmance. The duo, who both have big, successful movies out this year (Schumer with Trainwreck and Lawrence with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2), vacationed together on Long Island and — according to a new interview with the New York Times — are now writing a screenplay together for a movie they will both star in.

Lawrence broke the news during the interview, revealing they’ll play sisters in the untitled comedy. “Amy and I were creatively made for each other,” Lawrence says. “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.’”

J-Law told the Times that they’re about 100 pages in and it’s just flowing out of them, noting that their friendship began after she randomly emailed Schumer after seeing Trainwreck. Those emails soon became texts, and then they were vacationing together and now they’re making a movie together.

Sure it may sound a little odd, but it’s those kinds of crazy, unique, real-life relationships that will most likely produce the most exciting material. No word on what the movie is about, but both women are wildly funny, entertaining and genuine when it comes to what they create, be it a performance, a stand-up routine or a screenplay.

For Lawrence, this would be her first produced writing credit, assuming the movie actually happens. Then again, on what planet would a movie written by and starring Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence not actually happen?

Needless to say, this just shot up to the top of our anticipation list. What about you?


I have added two additional posters to the gallery for Mockingjay Part 2 as well as two stills of Jennifer from the upcoming X-Men Apocalypse to the gallery.

Jennifer Lawrence was working on the final installment of the Hunger Games when she received a call at 4 a.m. from director David O. Russell. “He said, ‘Do you want to play the part of the woman who invented The Miracle Mop?’ ” Lawrence took the unusual hour and the call itself in stride. “I’ve gotten a lot of middle-of-the-night phone calls from David,” she says with a laugh. But Joy ended up evolving into something else. “From that seed he went off into David land and it developed and changed, and now it’s a completely different story,” she says. “Usually [a film’s focus] is about the fight on the way to success and the happy ending. David goes on to tell the struggle that comes after that, along with all the sacrifices that come with finally getting what you want.”

Russell, who’s last three films — The Fighter, Silver Linings Playbook, and American Hustle — have all been nominated for Best Picture, was intrigued by the idea of doing a film larger in scope: an epic journey examing one woman’s life from age 10 to age 40, as she grows up, gets married, has children, and becomes an entrepreneur and matriarch. “It’s a woman’s soul over many decades of her life and how she changes,” he says.

Change is an important concept when it comes to a Russell production. Scripts and scenes and shooting schedules are, shall we say, fluid at all times. His actors just need to keep up. “It’s fascinating and terrifying working for him because he’s a mad scientist genius,” says Lawrence. “He’s inspired by anything. One time he wrote a scene by watching me get my hair done. He just went, ‘Oh! The sound of a shovel in the ground. Sinister!’ And then he ran out of the room.” She laughs. “I always see the wide eyes of people who’ve never worked with him before. I tell them, ‘You have to let go of all your s–t. You are the paint. He’s the paintbrush and the canvas.”

Édgar Ramirez (Zero Dark Thirty), who plays Joy’s husband, was one of those newcomers (along with Isabella Rosellini, Virginia Madsen, and Diane Ladd) joining Russell regulars Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper. “You have to be on your game,” he says. “There’s never a dull moment on a David O. Russell set. But that’s the beauty of it. That’s the magic.”

Less magical was the brutal winter that hit Boston during production last winter. “There was literally eight feet of snow outside,” says Russell, who was forced to move some locations, but still managed to see the upside. “It actually turned out great for us. The snow is very beautiful and Joy loves snow from a very young age.”

The actress who plays her does not, however. “I still have Snowst Traumatic Stress,” Lawrence says. “I feel like I’m in Game of Thrones, running around going, ‘Winter is coming again!’ ”

Joy marks the third Russell and Lawrence collaboration after Silver Linings (which won her the Oscar) and American Hustle, and they’ve developed a deep professional connection. “I almost don’t want to talk about it, it’s so special,” Russell says. “It feels like bad luck.” Lawrence, luckily, isn’t superstitious. “Working on his sets is like the Olympics of acting,” she says. “Everything moves so fast. It’s like watching someone do a giant abstract painting or sculpture and you go, ‘Where is this going?’ ” She laughs. “And then all of a sudden you’re like, ‘Oh, it’s a pegasus. It’s beautiful!’ ”

Joy opens on Dec. 25.

JOY is the wild story of a family across four generations centered on the girl who becomes the woman who founds a business dynasty and becomes a matriarch in her own right. Betrayal, treachery, the loss of innocence and the scars of love, pave the road in this intense emotional and human comedy about becoming a true boss of family and enterprise facing a world of unforgiving commerce. Allies become adversaries and adversaries become allies, both inside and outside the family, as Joy’s inner life and fierce imagination carry her through the storm she faces. Jennifer Lawrence stars, with Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, Edgar Ramirez, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd, and Virginia Madsen. Like David O. Russell’s previous films, Joy defies genre to tell a story of family, loyalty, and love.

Jennifer Lawrence is lining up a new project, and this one already had prestigious pedigree before she signed on. THR reports that the Hunger Games actress has attached herself to the romantic dramedy The Rosie Project, which boasts a screenplay by (500) Days of Summer and The Fault in Our Stars scribes Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber and was initially intended as a directorial effort for Jump Street filmmakers Phil Lord and Chris Miller. Now that Lord and Miller have signed on to helm a Star Wars movie, however, Columbia Pictures is quickly looking to fill the director’s chair.

Based on the book by Graeme Simison, the story centers on a professor of genetics who embarks on a project to help find him to the perfect partner, using a very specifically designed questionnaire. He is thrown for a loop when Rosie Jarman, who fills none of the criteria of the woman he should technically be with, stumbles into his life. The premise feels very close to Manic Pixie Dream Girl territory, but with such talent involved I’m inclined to believe (or hoping, rather) there’s more to the story than what this simple premise suggests.

With Lawrence’s attachment, Columbia sees this as a top priority and the studio hopes to put the project on the fast track. Lawrence recently wrapped a reunion with David O. Russell for Joy and is currently shooting X-Men: Apocalypse, and she has the sci-fi drama Passengers scheduled to start production later this year. If The Rosie Project comes together, though, it’s possible cameras could roll early next year, and the romance/dramedy would certainly make a nice change of pace from the more serious or grueling fare Lawrence has been tackling as of late.
