Amy Schumer's comedy with Jennifer Lawrence will be funny, dirty, and real
After viewing TRAINWRECK, and loving it, Jennifer Lawrence reached out to Amy Schumer and the pair soon became fast friends; in fact, they hit it off so well that they decided to write a movie for both of them to star in. The as-yet-untitled comedy will see Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer playing sisters and now the pair have given a few teases as to what their film will be about.
We just finished a new draft, and we’re just excited about it, it’s funny, it’s dirty, it’s real. It’s like us.
Yep! It’s is all of those things, 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.
Lawrence also commented on the pair's working relationship, saying that "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. And we're both very blunt. So we've gotten through a really strenuous process without ever fighting, because we're both very straightforward." It certainly sounds as though the project is shaping up to be an R-rated comedy to me. Amy Schumer is no strange to comedy, and while Jennifer Lawrence has definitely shown that she has a sense of humour, she hasn't yet had the chance to show her chops in a straight-up comedy so I'm looking forward to seeing what she can do.
Lawrence will next be seen in THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY - PART 2, the grand finale of THE HUNGER GAMES franchise, on November 20, 2015.
