Jennifer Lawrence has struck up quite an affinity for her Passengers co-star Chris Pratt, going so far as to let him into the inner sanctum of her friendship with Amy Schumer. During a recent interview with Watch What Happens Live!, Lawrence hinted at a role she'd like Pratt to play in an upcoming movie starring her and Schumer.
Lawrence has long teased fans that there's a comedy in the works in which she and Schumer would play sisters on a road trip, in hopes of connecting with their brother. The show's hosted hinted at Chris Pratt playing the brother, causing Lawrence to reply, “In a dream world."
This might sound like Lawrence was just trying to play nice for the camera, but when previously asked by Entertainment Tonight if perhaps a Hunger Games co-star, like Liam Hemsworth or Josh Hutcherson, could make an appearance, her answer was, “No, no, no, no, no…There’s not really boys in it.”
Schumer and Lawrence wrote the screenplay together, along with Schumer's sister Kim Caramele, which they have described as "funny," "dirty," and a "real movie." Schumer would play the sister who has her life together. When describing the character, Lawrence says, “It’s her lifelong dream to be a flight attendant. She works at the airport.” Lawrence's character, on the other hand, is quite the opposite. "I'm a mess," jokes Lawrence about the character.
Despite learning these new details about the project, don't hold your breath on when you can see it in theaters. “The script is finished — we’re both just trying to figure out our schedules,” reveals Lawrence.
Based on her description, it sounds like the comedy will be worth the wait. “It was hilarious, because when you’re writing a comedy it’s not good enough unless you’re laughing out loud,” Lawrence confessed to BBC 6 Music. “So I’m laughing at my pages and I’m laughing at her pages and thinking that the whole process is hilarious.”
Time will tell if Pratt gets tapped to star in the film alongside the real-life BFFs, but it sounds like the film will be hilarious regardless.
