The problem with most movies? Too many dudes. Unlike every action movie in which women's lines are limited to sexy moaning and the word "HELP!," Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer's forthcoming screenplay won't have any of those gross boys. Well, "not really."

When asked if they'd be including her Hunger Games co-stars Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson, Jennifer Lawrence told Entertainment Tonight, "No, no, no, no, no. There's not really boys in it."

Speaking of surprising casting decisions, Jennifer also revealed that despite Amy Schumer's adeptness at playing the trainwreck, she'll actually be the adult-y sister in the film: "Amy, in this movie, she has it very together," she said. "It's her lifelong dream to be a flight attendant. She works at the airport. And I'm a MESS." Zero dudes, a messy Jennifer Lawrence, and the whole world of airport comedy at their disposal? Great start.
