Two of Hollywood’s funniest leading ladies are taking their friendship to the next level. While discussing the final Hunger Games installment with the New York Times, Lawrence revealed she and Amy Schumer were almost done writing a movie in which they plan to play sisters.

“Amy and I were creatively made for each other,” Lawrence said. “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.”

The pair met a few months ago after Lawrence saw Schumer’s film and contacted her. “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,’” Lawrence recalled. “We started emailing, and then emailing turned to texting.”

And if you’re wondering, Schumer’s texts are as funny as her comedy: “I wrote, ‘I just spilled the beans to The New York Times. Is that O.K.?’” Lawrence said. “And Amy wrote back, ‘That you’re gay? Totally! It’s exciting!’”
