Okay, so it’s currently untitled, but rather than that THE UNTITLED JENNIFER LAWRENCE/AMY SCHUMER PROJECT nonsense, I’ll refer to it as My Future Favorite Movie for ease. Previously its co-stars and co-writers revealed the funny flick would have them playing sisters. But with Lawrence doing all the press to promote a little movie you might have heard of called The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2, she’s been dishing some new details.
Lawrence told Entertainment Tonight My Future Favorite Movie will flip the script on Schumer’s comedy hit Trainwreck, saying:
“Amy, in this movie, she has it very together. It’s her lifelong dream to be a flight attendant. She works at the airport, And I’m a MESS.”
While the charm bomb/Schumer bestie declined to get into the plot of their pic, she did make clear there’ll be no room for her Hunger Games co-stars to make cameos, saying, “There’s not really boys in it.”
So far all good signs. The major criticism Trainwreck came across was that it fell too hard into rom-com conventions of a girl being “saved” by a guy. So keeping dudes and thereby that device out of this script is a smart movie. Beyond that, Schumer’s relationship with her sister has enriched her work so far, so I’m curious to see how that’ll develop. Plus, I’m intrigue by Schumer playing against the type she’s established in her sketch comedy, stand-up and movie. And I’m pumped to see Lawrence get the chance to really cut loose in a comedy.
Lastly, jetski enthusiast Lawrence assured that the flick would be funny, dirty and real. So like I said: My Future Favorite Movie.
