In her new book, Lock and Load, author Jennifer Lawrence and her husband, screenwriter Robert Zemeckis, discuss how they hacked into a lock in order to unlock it.
They also discuss why they chose the name Lock and load, which they found hilarious when the title seemed too similar to the phrase “Lock and load” from a song by The Weeknd.
Lawrence said that she’s been a fan of Lock and Loaded since she was a kid.
“I love the idea of finding the most complicated way to get into a door, because the way I look at it, I don’t think of it as a lock.
I think of the lock as a tool that you need to get the door open.
It’s like a piece of puzzle that you have to put together.
That’s why Lock and, Load was so appealing to me.”
Lawrence said she found the Lock and loader a little funny, “because we were in a movie set and the locksmith guy had an air horn that he’d give you.”
She was surprised to learn that the air horn could be used to “disarm a door with a tap of your finger.”
When Lawrence asked Zemeks about the origin of the name, he told her that he didn’t think he was the first person to use it, though he did find it amusing.
“My wife was like, ‘Why are you using the name?’ and I was like ‘Oh, because you’re in Lock andload,'” he recalled.
“She was like [laughing] ‘What?!?
Why would you call it Lock andLoad?'”
Lawrence and Zemecker are married and are raising their children in California.
The couple is working on a film about Lock and Lock, and they also wrote a book together, Lock Up, a thriller about a woman who discovers that she has an unbreakable lock on her apartment door.
The book is set in the fictional town of Lockford, Massachusetts, where Lawrence grew up.
“We love Lock and Locks and the way they’ve influenced the way we think about our lives and our dreams,” Lawrence said.
“So the thing that we wanted to say with Lock and Unlock is that we have this kind of crazy idea of what a lock is, but it’s also this strange, crazy idea about how people can unlock things.”
She said that one of the most important things to her as a writer is to not only convey the feeling of the book, but also to show how it’s actually built.
“You can take any book that I’ve ever written and you can take a page or two and just try to tell your story in a way that you can actually tell the reader,” she said.
And that’s exactly what Lock and Pull does, with its witty dialogue, surreal plot twists, and quirky characters.
Lawrence described the first draft of the script as “one of the funniest books I’ve written,” and Zeb writes that it was also a book that he felt like was “an homage to the comic books that I grew up reading.”
They even went to a library in New York to borrow an old copy of The Comics Code to create a comic book adaptation.
But they also realized that it wasn’t a “comic book” that was “about an imaginary town where the kids are in lockdowns.”
They wrote it as an “alternative” that would give kids the “fear of locking their doors and the hope of locking themselves out of their houses.”
Lawrence and Robert Zeb say that Lock and Draws “is really about the fear of lockdowns and the fear that if you’re locked out you can’t get out.”
They also found that it could be a “great introduction to a whole new world of storytelling” because “lockdowns are just really scary.”
The book also had a very different tone than the one Lawrence and the Zemckis are used to writing.
“It’s not like a comic that’s all about superheroes and all about being a hero,” Lawrence told The Hollywood Reporter.
“In a lot of ways, it’s about a lot more mundane things, like, what are we supposed to do in these lockdowns, how do we get our kids to come out of lockups, what do we do when the lock is broken?
These things are more common in the real world, but in a different way.”
She added, “It was an opportunity to explore these ideas that I had when I was growing up.”
Lawrence described her process of writing the book in terms of three stages: writing, drawing, and editing.
She said she wanted to show her readers that she is a writer first, and then a reader, and finally a reader-writer.
“And when you write a novel, there are certain things you have in common with a novel that you do in a story,” she explained.
“For instance, a lot is about
