As fans already know, Lawrence and Schumer are best friends, and what’s even better than their real-life friendship is that fact that they are working on a movie together in which they will be playing sisters, twins actually. The news that the Hunger Games alum and her hilarious friend Schumer were teaming up for a project first broke last fall, and now Lawrence has confirmed it’s moving forward.
“We just had a table read two weeks ago,” Lawrence told Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen recently after a fan called in wanting news about the script. “We have completed format — we need a director and we need a date,” she added.
One thing Lawrence didn’t know about the film, however, was that according to Cohen, Bette Midler said she would love to play the girls’ mom on screen, and we kind of need this to become a reality ASAP.
“Are you being serious right now? That’s news to me,” Lawrence replied after Cohen shared this news with her. “We don’t have a mom, but we’ll write one in.”
Lawrence and Schumer might not have a mom in the upcoming comedy, or a title or release date for that matter, but knowing they have a script and have done a table read is really good news.
