Jennifer Lawrence is still one of the busiest actresses in Hollywood. The enigmatic trailer for her latest movie, Darren Aronofsky’s mother!, premiered early Tuesday morning, and in a new Vogue cover story she talks about that film and also gives an update on another project she’s working on: A movie with her friend Amy Schumer.

“We’re meeting with directors,” Lawrence told Vogue. She added that the two of them would play “dysfunctional twins” in the untitled project, and that the movie’s plot is both “sad” and “funny.”

“She’s the funniest person I’ve ever met,” Lawrence said of Schumer. “She’s also an amazing dramatic actress, which I want to bring out.”

Vogue also got comment from Schumer herself, who said that “Jen is funny like a comic” and that “She understands the rhythm of a joke and how to play both the straight man and the idiot. She has one of the darkest senses of humor I’ve ever encountered and it’s delightful. My only problem with her is that she’s fat.”
