The last big comedy to feature a business trip was Unfinished Business and... Yeah... anyway... We have much more faith in a new project that arrives with Emma Stone, Kate McKinnon and Jillian Bell attached called Women In Business.

20th Century Fox has plunked down the cash to buy Laura Steinel's script, and Jake Szymanski, who has the upcoming Mike & Dave Need Wedding Dates is in the director's chair.

Women In Business finds two competitive women sent on a business trip to Canada and rekindle their rivalry. But they're also trying to get work done and when the situation requires an intern, they hire one off Craiglist. Which leads to all sorts of chaos.

Steinel has worked on shows such as Amazon's Red Oaks and has a new comedy pilot set up on Fox's TV counterpart. Stone, last seen in Irrational Man, will star with Ryan Gosling in La La Land and is at work on Battle Of The Sexes. SNL regular McKinnon is in this summer's new Ghostbusters, which lands on July 15 and has a voice in The Angry Birds Movie (May 13), which also features Bell.
