Besties Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer are reportedly writing a movie together where the pair will play sisters.

The two met after Lawrence saw Trainwreck and decided to reach out to Schumer.

"I emailed her after I saw 'Trainwreck' and said, 'I don't know where to get started. I guess I should just say it: I'm in love with you,'" Lawrence told The Times. "We started emailing, and then emailing turned to texting."

The dynamic duo was spotted last month riding jet skis together and having some fun in the sun.

Don't expect the movie to hit theaters any time soon, though. The script is still in the very early stages.

Continuing the trend he began of financing his own albums, then selling them for a cheap price on his own website, comedian Louis CK just released yet another one Aug. 8. This time it's a little bit different.

Louis CK: Live at Madison Square Garden is now available at his store and he's now letting those interested set their own price for the comedy.

Here's how he explains it:

Hi. This is a comedy album. It's the audio from my last of 3 shows that I performed at Madison Square Garden early this year. Some of the material is in the Comedy Store Special. Some of it isn't. But it's also a fun show on it's own. BUT since it's repeated material, I'm giving you the option to set your price anywhere from 1 dollar to 85. The default is $5. I hope you like it.

...Price: so I didn't know what to charge for this because a lot of the material was on my Comedy Store special and it was hard to get good sound because comedy is intimate and MSG is large, so there's a lot of sound slapping around everywhere though the sound engineer and the mixer did their level best. So we have the price set to 5 dollars but you can lower it to 1 dollar or raise it to 85. that's the maximum, because beyond that, I don't want your crazy money. Not for this show.



If you love his show Louie (and you should), you might think about shilling out the $1 for this album. He recently announced that he's taking an extended hiatus from the FX show to work on other projects, so who knows when we'll hear his stuff next.

It seems like only yesterday that we got the first glimpse of the Goosebumps movie. Oh wait. It was only yesterday.

In the wake of the media avalanche that is San Diego Comic Con, Sony Pictures maybe wanted to get ahead of the curve with the release of the first poster.



And only the day after, we received the first trailer for the movie based on the long-running series of young adult/children's horror books. If you're anywhere between the ages of 12 and 35, you probably have some experience reading these books to the point of fright.

And now you'll be able to watch a movie about it in October! The future!



In this take on the book series that started in 1992, Jack Black plays the author R.L. Stine as he's tasked with rounding up his creations.



Well, they both have glasses.

UPDATE

The official Twitter account of the movie just dropped a new, official trailer on the hot heels of the other one.

Welcome to National Goosebumps Day, apparently.

According to Chicago Tribune, actor and comedian Joel McHale will be the featured performer and host of the annual White House Correspondents' Association Dinner. The event will be attended by members of the media, celebrities, and the U.S. president.


McHale is the star of NBC's comedy "Community" and is the host of E! network's "The Soup." "He's sharp, funny, and just the type of comic who can navigate the unique challenge of our dinner, making fun of Democrats, Republicans and especially the news media," WHCA President and McClatchy Co political editor Steven Thomma said in a statement.

In a Twitter post after the announcement, McHale said: "My material will be equally offensive to all & over within 30 min - just like a Congressional work year."

The 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards took place this weekend and the comedic duo of Amy Poehler and Tina Fey has done it again! Comedic stunts such as "accidentally" mispronouncing Tom Hanks' name and a timely impression of Michael Bay kept the laughter rolling all night. Digg has put together a short highlight reel that nicely sums up the reason we all love these two fantastic comedians.
