Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to reunite in ‘The Nest’
How is it that we can put a man on the moon, but Amy Poehler and Tina Fey have only starred in one film together? And that film was “Baby Mama”?
Luckily, all that putting men on the moon has finally paid off: Poehler and Fey are finally set to costar in another movie. (“Mean Girls” doesn’t count. They had supporting roles in that.) According to the Hollywood Reporter, the stars of “30 Rock” and “Parks and Recreation” will costar in “The Nest,” a dark period thriller. Just kidding, it’s a comedy, obviously. “The Nest” is about adult sisters (they’re playing sisters!) who find out that their parents are selling their childhood home, so they decide to throw one last big party there. In the process, they learn to mature.
“The Nest” will be directed by Jay Roach, who also directed “Pitch Perfect.” It’s written by Paula Pell, a former “Saturday Night Live” writer who also played Pete’s wife on “30 Rock.” I already want to give this movie a hug. But even if it doesn’t end up getting made, I want to be perfectly clear: I would be nearly as happy with documentary footage of these two getting lunch together.
