Lawrence let the news fly allegedly by mistake today while speaking with The New York Times about her forthcoming showing as Katniss Everdeen in the final chapter of The Hunger Games series. And by the sounds of it, the project from the duo is pretty far along in the initial writing phase, though plot specifics are still fuzzy.
“We play sisters, ” Lawrence said. “We’re almost done writing. It just flowed out of us. We’ve got about 100 pages right now.”
The two actresses have been sharing the spotlight recently, and the news is causing substantial buzz.
Lawrence explains they each bring something different to the table:
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.’
The collaboration seems to be a result of the pair becoming BFFs earlier this summer.
About a month ago the Internet was set a flame when photos revealed of the two vacationing together.
The friendship between the two began only a short time before, according to The New York Times, when in summer camp-like fashion Lawrence wrote to Schumer and declared her love:
“I emailed her after I saw ‘Trainwreck’ and said, ‘I don’t know where to get started. I guess I should just say it: I’m in love with you, ‘” she recalled. “We started emailing, and then emailing turned to texting.”
And it seems when Lawrence shared the news of their new project, she let Schumer know via text, and the comedian replied in pretty typical fashion. Lawrence said, “I wrote, ‘I just spilled the beans to The New York Times. Is that O.K.?’ And Amy wrote back, ‘That you’re gay? Totally! It’s exciting!'”
