Amy Poehler is Back with Tina Fey for Universal's 'The Nest' Comedy
Over a year ago we learned that Tina Fey would team up with Pitch Perfect director Jason Moore for a new comedy called The Nest set up at Universal. The film hails from "Saturday Night Live" veteran writer Paula Pell and follows two thirtysomething sisters come home to find their parents’ house has been put up for sale, so they decide to spend one more wild weekend together there, bonding, feuding and finally growing up. Now Showbiz 411 reports another "SNL" alum will join Fey in the fun, and we couldn't be more thrilled that it's the comedienne's awesome Golden Globe co-host, "Parks & Recreation" star Amy Poehler. Read on!
The sisters' wild weekend consists of one last blow out party, the kind that they were famous for back in the day.. Fey and Poehler (who both starred in Mean Girls, but never appeared on screen together) previously starred in Baby Mama, a comedy that had its heart in the right place, but didn't quite deliver the hilarity we all hoped for in the end. But the duo also got into a big news anchor fight at the end of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, and that was just fantastic. We're not sure who else will join the cast, but production begins in the second week of June in New York so stay tuned.
