Two of Hollywood’s favorite “it” girls are collaborating on a haute new screenplay. Yes, Jennifer Lawrence and comedian Amy Schumer have teamed up to write a screenplay in which the two coolest women in Tinseltown play sisters.
In an interview with the New York Times, Lawrence revealed the exciting news. She said, “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 two met following an email conversation when Lawrence expressed her admiration for Schumer. The 25-year-old recalled, “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.’ We started emailing, and then emailing turned to texting.”
Thus far, the two have written 100 pages and the comedic screenplay is nearly finished.
As Lawrence continues to promote the last installment of The Hunger Games, the newest artwork for the movie debuted on Monday. It features Lawrence’s character Katniss Everdeen in a red-suited Mockingjay attire standing at the top of a collapsed statue of Panem’s ruthless ruler, President Snow, as well as fellow rebels surrounding her.
The artwork’s debut coincides with the anniversary of the third book Mockingjay (The Final Book of The Hunger Games) written by Suzanne Collins and published by Scholastic Press, which was released Aug. 24th 2010.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay is slated to hit theaters Nov. 20. In the final installment Hunger Games fans will see more of Panem, as Katniss, Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), Gale (Liam Hemsworth), Finnick (Sam Clafin) and the rest of District 13 team up to for the final mission to overthrow the capitol.
