Lawrence and Schumer will be co-starring in the film — as sisters.

This beautiful union was born out of Lawrence fangirling over Schumer.

"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,'" she told the New York Times. "We started emailing, and then emailing turned to texting." AND THE REST IS HISTORY.


Lawrence will be the trainwreck this time around. Meanwhile, Schumer's character is pursuing her goal of becoming a flight attendant.

"Amy, in this movie, she has it very together," Lawrence told Entertainment Tonight. "It's her lifelong dream to be a flight attendant. She works at the airport...and I'm a MESS."

And according to Lawrence it's been a match made in heaven, creatively. “We have different flavors," she told the New York Times. "It’s been the most fun experience of my life."

"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."


For real, though, these two are MADE. FOR. EACH. OTHER. And it might lead to some wildin'.

"I watched Trainwreck and I was like, 'Yep, we're made for each other,' and then I reached out and everything just happened so quickly," Lawrence told Entertainment Tonight. "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."

Bette Midler would like to play Lawrence and Schumer's mother.

Amy Schumer & Jennifer Lawrence are co-writing a screenplay about sisters. Hmm, who could play their mother? She'd have to be DIVINE!

There is no evidence yet to suggest that moves have been made to actually cast her in the movie, but the hat has been thrown into the ring.

But don't waste all your excitement now, because this movie will probably take FOREVER to land in front of our faces in movie theaters.

Or trailers. Or posters. Hell, who even know when it will actually start shooting or even pick a director? Schumer noted that she and Lawrence had "just finished a new draft" when she spoke to Access Hollywood. In other words: Don't hold your breath, but let your excitement guide you through the next few years of waiting.
