After a week filled with terrible news, Jennifer Lawrence has saved the day once again. On Wednesday, the 25-year-old actress/professional Cher impersonator, talked with a reporter about the final film in the Hunger Games franchise.
But as we all know, Lawrence has a hard time focusing on just one subject. She started to talk about a comedy screenplay she is currently writing with Trainwreck star Amy Schumer. “We play sisters. We’re almost done writing. It just flowed out of us. We’ve got about 100 pages right now.” She told the reporter.
So how did this happen? Well, we’re just going to let Jennifer explain…
“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.’”
I’m sold. I know nothing about this movie, but I’ve always wanted to see Lawrence star in a pure comedy. And Schumer is one of the biggest comedy stars on the planet right now. How could this movie not be the most incredible thing ever?
Sure, it’s still early. The screenplay isn’t finished, there are no directors or production companies attached to the project right now, but that’s obviously going to change. Hollywood cares about one thing: money. And with Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer starring, this movie is going to make a lot of money.
We’ll keep you posted.
