Tina Fey Teams With ‘Pitch Perfect’ Director For Upcoming Comedy
Tina Fey is wasting no time lining up acting gigs post-’30 Rock‘ — in addition to leading the cast of ‘The Muppets… Again,’ Fey will also star in the new comedy from ‘Pitch Perfect‘ director Jason Moore called ‘The Nest.’
We’re still drying our tears after last week’s amazing ’30 Rock’ series finale, so it’s great news for Tina Fey fans that the actress is still hard at work. Deadline reports that Fey is in talks to lead ‘The Nest’ for ‘Pitch Perfect’ director Jason Moore and writer Paula Pell. Pell formerly wrote with Fey on ‘SNL‘ and ’30 Rock’ and also recently produced Judd Apatow’s ‘This is 40.’ Fey will produce ‘The Nest’ via her Little Stranger production banner.
The comedy follows two 30-something sisters who return to their family home only to find it’s been put up for sale. They decide to spend one last weekend together, fighting and bonding in this late coming-of-age tale.
Moore had a surprise hit last year with ‘Pitch Perfect,’ an acapella-themed comedy that packed a whole lot of heart and a ton of laughs. Fey recently signed on to be the female lead in the upcoming ‘Muppets’ sequel, and co-stars with Paul Rudd in the upcoming dramedy ‘Admission.’
