Have you ever been hanging out with your friends and thought, "This—this crazy bond we share and the weird things we do together—should be a movie"? Well, turns out famous people have the same thought.

Sophie Turner recently revealed that she and her former Game of Thrones costar/real-life BFF Maisie Williams want to write a movie about their friendship. 

"My best friend Maisie, she and I have a very intense friendship, a friendship that I haven’t had with any of my other girlfriends before," Sophie explained during an interview with 

Vogue Paris alongside her Dark Phoenix costar Jessica Chastain. "We felt like we wanted to write a movie about a friendship where it’s kind of like you’re soulmates, but you’re friends and it’s like this beautiful connection but it can also be quite destructive."

Don't get too excited just yet; Sophie and Maisie have not started writing said movie just yet. But Sophie did reveal that she bought a screenwriting book, which is the first step towards this movie becoming a reality.

"I bought a screenplay writing book!" Sophie said. "To teach myself. Because I can’t write well, but I want to. But I’m just not talented enough."
