Actress Jennifer Lawrence on Wednesday revealed she and comedy star Amy Schumer are writing a screenplay for a movie in which they'd play sisters.

"We're almost done writing," Lawrence, 25, told The New York Times. "It just flowed out of us. We've got about 100 pages right now."

"The Hunger Games" star said she and Schumer, 34, "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.' "

Oscar-winner Lawrence and Emmy-nominated Schumer became acquainted within the past month. After seeing "Trainwreck," which opened July 17, Lawrence emailed the Rockville Centre-raised Schumer to express her admiration and from then on they've been friends.
