Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Schumer writing screenplay

Press Trust of India  |  New York 

Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence and comedienne Amy Schumer are "almost" done co-penning a screenplay for an upcoming film, where they will play sisters.

Lawrence, 25, said she and the 34-year-old "Trainwreck" star are creatively made for each other, reported the New York Times.

"Amy and I were creatively made for each other. We have different flavors. It's been the most fun experience of my life. We're almost done writing. It just flowed out of us We've got about 100 pages right now."

The actresses, who recently vacationed together in Martha's Vineyard, only met a few months ago.

"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... We really hit it off, to say the least."


Of their collaborative writing process, the "Hunger Games actress" said, "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'."

Mid-interview, Lawrence texted Schumer that she let their secret slip. "I wrote, 'I just spilled the beans to The New York Times. Is that OK?'" she said.
