That escalated quickly. Mere months after meeting and becoming Bffs, Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence are working together on a script that they’re aiming to star in. Given that it’s still at an early stage, Lawrence – ostensibly talking to The New York Times about The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 – was reticent to reveal too much. But she did say that, “we play sisters. “We’re almost done writing. It just flowed out of us. We’ve got about 100 pages right now.” Lawrence says she got in contact with Schumer after seeing Trainwreck, and the two became fast friends, with Lawrence joining the comedian, actress and writer on holiday with her crowd. That has now become a professional connection. “Amy and I were creatively made for each other. We have different flavours,” she says. “It’s been the most fun experience of my life. We start the day off on the phone, »
It's too good to be true. It has to be some elaborate joke. Jennifer Lawrence is making our dreams a reality! The Hunger Games star talked to the New York Times Wednesday about her last hurrah with the dystopian franchise and casually dropped the biggest bomb of all time: She and Amy Schumer are writing a screenplay together. That's right! The comedic genius behind Trainwreck and the loveable Oscar winner are coming together to create what will probably be one of the best movies ever. Even if it's not, we'll all love it anyway. "We play sisters," Lawrence dished to the Nyt. "We're almost done writing. It just flowed out of us. We've got about 100 pages right »
“We play sisters,” Lawrence told The New York Times about the film’s storyline. “We’re almost done writing. It just flowed out of us. We’ve got about 100 pages right now.”
Lawrence casually broke the news on Wednesday while discussing “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2.”
“Amy and I were creatively made for each other,” she told Nyt. “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.’”
She then picked up her phone to text Schumer, who she met just a few months ago, »

If you thought a movie co-starring Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt was too much greatness for one to witness, then your face might melt off Indiana Jones style when you watch J-Law.s upcoming comedy with Amy Schumer. That.s right, Ms. Katniss Everdeen revealed that she.s working on a new movie with the hottest comedienne in Hollywood right now. During an interview with The New York Times about The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2, coming out this November, Lawrence casually let the news slip about a collaboration with Amy Schumer. She revealed: We play sisters. We.re almost done writing. It just flowed out of us. We.ve got about 100 pages right now. So not only are they starring in this untitled film together, they also co-wrote the screenplay. We had no idea the biggest (and highest-paid) actress in Hollywood was friends with Schumer, but then again, we »
Speaking with The New York Times, Lawrence says they're almost finished writing the script with about one-hundred pages done. She adds that:
"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.'"
Lawrence's next film, the final movie in "The Hunger Games" franchise, opens November 20th.

Jennifer Lawrence may have just broken the internet. Again.
"We play sisters [in the film]," Lawrence said in an interview with the New York Times. "We're almost done writing. It just flowed out of us. We've got about 100 pages right now."
The Oscar-winner also told the Times what everyone really wants to know: How this team-up happened.
"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,'" Lawrence recalled "We started emailing, and then emailing turned to texting."
And texting turned into jet skiing together in early August and then writing a movie, naturally.
"Amy and I were creatively made for each other," Lawrence said. "It's been the most fun experience of my life. We »

How good as 2015 been for moviegoers? This past year audiences have witnessed an opening act that included blockbusters such as “Cinderella,” “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” “Fifty Shades of Grey” and “Furious 7.” Hollywood followed that string up with summer goods such as “Mad Max: Fury Road,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Trainwreck,” “Inside Out” and “Jurassic World” (currently no. 3 all-time at the U.S. box office). And while we’re currently experiencing the annual cycle of late August dumps you won't even watch on an airplane, the movie gods may have saved the best for last. The upcoming fall movie season has a little bit of something for everyone. Comedy fans can look forward to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler reuniting on screen in “Sisters,” Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell are also back together in “Daddy’s Home” and Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie look to party in “The Night Before »

As we roar towards the conclusion of The Hunger Games film series, the marketing team has rolled out another promotional banner for the film, this time tied to the fact that it’s five years since Suzanne Collins’ third novel Mockingjay – adapted into two movies – was published. The version above is just the smaller size to fit on to the page – check out the full, scrollable banner right here.Following on from the first Mockingjay, the second part of the story finds Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and the rebels making the final push against Donald Sutherland's scheming President Snow and the Capitol, with lives on the line and sacrifices to be made. The new movie should boost the action quotient as the bigger beats are to be found lurking towards the end of the book.And this striking new image – some less-than-amazing photo-shopping aside – shows Katniss and some of her »
