This is so exciting!

Back in August, we found out that Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer are writing a movie together in which they’re going to play sisters!

We haven’t heard a whole lot about the specifics of the movie other than Miz Schumer’s recent comments at the Hollywood Film Awards.

Well we’re finally getting some new insight in the form of character details from J.Law herself!

She told Entertainment Tonight:

“Amy, in this movie, she has it very together. It’s her lifelong dream to be a flight attendant. She works at the airport.”

As for Jennifer’s character, she revealed she’s the polar opposite:

“I’m a mess.”

Nice! We’re excited to see J.Law play the comic relief — more like her co-star’s character in Trainwreck!

She explained it was actually Amy’s recent hit that convinced her they would work well together:

“I watched Trainwreck and I was like, ‘Yep, we’re made for each other.'”

The Oscar winner also detailed how the two actresses ended up working together, saying:

“I reached out and everything just happened so quickly. We both have very similar senses of humor, obviously and aren’t afraid, which is a good and bad thing, because I don’t know what our movie will be rated. And we’re both very blunt. So we’ve gotten through a really strenuous process without ever fighting, because we’re both very straightforward.”

Unfortunately for Hunger Games fans, when the 25-year-old actress was asked if Josh Hutcherson or Liam Hemsworth might show up in the flick, she said:

“No, no, no, no, no… There’s not really boys in it.”


Honestly, we’re fine with the all girls club! With Schumer and J.Law, what else do you need to make a hit?!

Are you excited about the flick?! Sound off in the comments (below).
