Tina Fey spent seven years as the creator, star, writer, and producer of 30 Rock, and since that show just came to an end, many are speculating that we'll start to see her pop up on the film side now that she has a lot more time on her hands. Deadline has a report that seems to support that theory, pegging Fey to star in a new comedy for Pitch Perfect director Jason Moore.
Moore made quite a first impression with his acapella musical comedy, and now he's setting his sights on a collaboration with Fey for a film called The Nest, which is described as being about two sisters who "come home to find their parents’ house has been put up for sale. They spend a last wild weekend together, bonding and feuding and finally growing up." With a synopsis like that, this movie obviously isn't looking to reinvent the wheel, so let's hope that Moore can prove himself more than a one hit wonder and see if Fey can live up to the pressure of transitioning to the big screen.
We should also note that the original story for The Nest comes from writer Paula Pell, who has worked with Fey before since Pell has been a writer on Saturday Night Live for the past 17 years. This is her first feature script, but we're optimistic that Fey's charisma, Moore's direction, and a hopefully-funny script will mix together well and bring us something memorable.
