Amy Schumer Is Writing a Comedy with Jennifer Lawrence

Move over, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler–well, not really, you can stay. But Jewish comedian Amy Schumer and “Hunger Games” star Jennifer Lawrence are joining forces to write a comedic screenplay together, according to the New York Times. After watching and loving Trainwreck,” Schumer’s first movie she wrote and starred in, Lawrence reached out and the two have become fast friends–they’ll even be playing sisters in their collaborative project.

Lawrence describes her and Schumer as being “creatively made for each other,” stating how they work together:

“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.”

We still can’t get over their jet-ski adventure. And oh yeah: last night the pair danced on top of Billy Joel’s piano at a concert in Wrigley Field. BFFs for the win.
