After bonding over a mutual love of Hampton holidays and Billy Joel last month, Lawrence and Schumer announced that they are collaborating on a screenplay. “It just flowed out of us”, the 25-year-old actress told New York Times before adding that a 100-page script is nearly ready. “We’ve got about 100 pages right now”.
Bette Midler nominated herself for a part in Lawrence and Schumer’s movie on Twitter, writing: “Hmm, who could play their mother?”
According to Entertainment Weekly, Jennifer Lawrence said they are working with Amy Schumer’s sister, Kim, who also worked on “Trainwreck“.
What do you think of the casting idea? She has played film roles in “The Rose”, “Down and Out in Beverly Hills”, “Ruthless People”, “Beaches” and “The First Wives Club“, among many others. Covering seven Decades of music beginning with the 1930’s, the album will feature an array of girl groups including The Boswell Sisters, The Andrews Sisters and R&B LEGENDSTLC. Midler made her Broadway debut in the chorus of Fiddler on the Roof.
Although the comedy is only in initial stages of development, Midler is thinking ahead.
The actress, who recently wrapped the American leg of her Divine Intervention tour in Brooklyn, tweeted her interest Tuesday.
