America’s two favorite blondes are writing a movie together and plan to co-star in it.  Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence recently started hanging out—and vacationing together, as the world found out from Instagram—and now we know what they’ve been up to. According to the New York Times, the two are almost finished co-writing a screenplay for a comedy movie in which they would play sisters. Lawrence told the Times’ Brooks Barnes that it all started when Lawrence saw a certain Schumer/Judd Apatow flick:

“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,’ ” she recalled. “We started emailing, and then emailing turned to texting.”

And then came the jetski- and human-pyramid-filled vacation photos that set our souls alight. “Amy and I were creatively made for each other,” Lawrence told the Times. “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.” No word yet on what the movie will be about, but Lawrence said Schumer’s real-life sister and frequent collaborator Kim Caramele will also contribute to the screenplay.
