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.

"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 (opens in new tab) costar Jessica Chastain (opens in new tab). "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 (opens in new tab) 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."
