The last time A Saturday Night Live writer teamed with director Jason Moore we got Anna Kendrick in “Pitch Perfect”. So now Moore is teaming up with another SNL writer for “The Nest” starring Tina Fey. The film will follow  two thirtysomething sisters come home to find their parents’ house has been put up for sale, so they decide to spend one more wild weekend together there, bonding, feuding and finally growing up. 

The second sister hasn’t been cast. Which makes you wonder. The obvious choice would be Amy Poehler right? But Kristen Wiig has seen her stock rise thanks to “Bridesmaids”. Could we get another SNL vet, one we’re not expecting? Either way this sounds like it has the makings of a very funny film.
