While promoting the final installment of The Hunger Games, Jennifer Lawrence revealed the plot of the “funny,” “dirty,” and “real” screenplay she’s writing with Amy Schumer. 

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Lawrence elaborated on the film’s story about two sisters she and Schumer will play. “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, so…” she says, trailing off. 

In other words, it’s Trainwreck 2: View From the Top?

Not exactly, Lawrence says, adding that the film so far includes only female roles, because “there’s not really boys in it.” That said, Schumer’s summer hit did help spark the pair’s friendship and eventual creative collaboration.

“It really just felt very cosmic,” Lawrence said about why the two work well together. “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. 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.”
