30 Rock star Tina Fey is in talks to star in the Universal Pictures comedy The Nest, with Pitch Perfect director Jason Moore in negotiations to take the helm.
Tina Fey joins the Universal Pictures comedy The Nest
The story centers on two thirtysomething sisters who come home to the news that their parents are selling the house. They spend one final weekend together in their childhood home, bonding together and feuding before realizing they both need to grow up. Tina Fey will play one of the sisters, although the other has not been cast yet.
Paula Pell, who served as a writer on 30 Rock and Saturday Night Live, wrote the screenplay. Tina Fey will also produce. No production schedule has been given, but it is believed that this will be the next project for both Tina Fey and filmmaker Jason Moore.
Tina Fey will next be seen on the big screen in Focus Features' comedy Admission, opening in theaters March 22. Her hit NBC sitcom 30 Rock, which she created, produced, and starred in, wrapped its seven-season run last week. She also co-hosted The 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards with Amy Poehler, who may be an obvious choice to play the second sister in The Nest.
