In case you've been living under a rock, let's get you up to speed: Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence are writing a movie together (opens in new tab). In it, they play sisters. Bette Midler could maybe, possibly play their mom (opens in new tab). Schumer assured us that Lawrence is a "great writer." (opens in new tab) And the world waits with bated breath for the damn thing to come out already because obviously it is going to be amazing.

Because she is the best/loves to tease us, J.Law just revealed some *new* details about the film. Using descriptors like "funny," "dirty," and "real," the actress explained a bit more about the plot to Entertainment Tonight (opens in new tab): "Amy, in this movie, she has it very together. It's her lifelong dream to be a flight attendant. She works at the airport," she said. As for her character? "I'm a MESS." 

"We both have very similar senses of humor, obviously and aren't afraid, which is a good and bad thing, because I don't know what our movie will be rated," Lawrence continued. "And we're both very blunt. So we've gotten through a really strenuous process without ever fighting, because we're both very straightforward." 

What about for roles for, say, Bradley Cooper or Liam Hemsworth? "No, no, no, no, no...there's not really boys in it," Lawrence insists. 

Next up: Release date. Right Jen? RIGHT?
