Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer are co-writing a screenplay


tumblr_nr8jkeI8q91r2igm4o1_1280If you’re one of the folks out there who wish Jennifer Lawrence would branch out a bit more from David O. Russell directed Oscar bait (personally, I think she’s killing it there, but that’s just me), you’re in luck. Reports have her giving screenwriting a shot, with none other than actress/comedian/writer Amy Schumer herself. Yes, apparently they’ve become good friends and now they’re co-writing a comedy where they’ll play sisters. If you’re a fan of Schumer’s writing like myself (both in Trainwreck as well as Inside Amy Schumer), then this is pretty exciting news. Throw in how much I like Lawrence as an actress, especially her underrated comedic skills, and this could potentially be something pretty special. They’re in the process of writing it right now, so there’s nothing concrete happening, but I have to imagine a studio will jump at the chance to make this. If/when it gets a green light, we’ll bring you news on a director and co-stars, but once that happens, a Lawrence/Schumer team up will be high on my most anticipated films list. In the meantime, we’ll see what Lawrence has to offer up with Russell again when Joy hits on Christmas Day. Sit tight until then…
