Tina Fey Eyes The Nest
Pitch Perfect's Jason Moore may direct
30 Rock may have finally – sniff – left the air, but that doesn’t mean we’ve seen the last of Tina Fey. Nope, the multi-talented comedienne has a development deal for another show but, with the day-to-day duties of running a series on hold, can devote time to her film career. She’s mulling a few options, including The Nest, which she’s producing and which now has Jason Moore in talks to direct.
The Nest, written by Paula Pell (who worked with Fey when she was on Saturday Night Live and is still part of the writing staff), finds two thirty-something sisters who come home to discover that their parents’ house has been put on the market.
To drown their sorrows, they decide to spend a last wild weekend at home together, feuding, fighting, and finally maturing a little.
Moore, who last directed successful a capella-com Pitch Perfect, comes from a stage background having worked on the such shows as Avenue Q and Jerry Springer: The Opera. He’s actually gearing up a new show now, the Scissor Sisters-based Tales Of The City, which is set to hit Broadway next year. But it sounds like The Nest will be his next film project.
Fey, who will next be on screen in Admission, has a few films bubbling away in development, including a likely reunion with Date Night’s Steve Carell on Mail-Order Groom. She’ll also act alongside Kermit and co in The Muppets… Again!
