World’s funniest women Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will play hard-partying sisters in upcoming comedy The Nest, Variety reports.
Tina Fey had been attached to the Universal flick for some time, but her fellow SNL Weekend Update anchor and Golden Globes co-host Amy Poehler is now in final negotiations to join her.
The script comes from former SNL writer Paula Pell and concerns two 30-something siblings who host one last wild shindig at their childhood home.
This doesn’t mark their first film collaboration, however. Poehler had a small, hilarious part in Fey’s Mean Girls, and the duo shared co-lead status in the only-okay Baby Mama.
Though Baby Mama was only a modest success at the box office, The Nest should fare slightly better; after all, the 30 Rock and Parks and Rec stars have never been more popular.
Now if only they can convince their Dog President co-stars Damien Francisco and Darcy St. Fudge to join them.
