Until last year, Jason Moore was a veteran director of stage Musicals, putting on everything from Les Miserables to Avenue Q. Then, last September, Moore made a seamless transition into film with the Musical Comedy Pitch Perfect (see how well he did at our Pitch Perfect quotes page).
Now, he's ditching the "musical" part, as Moore is set to direct the comedy The Nest, written by long-time SNL writer Paula Pell. And who is eyeing the starring role in the new film? None other than the Reigning Queen of Comedy, Tina Fey (who is also producing).
The film follows two sisters who spend one final weekend in their childhood home before it gets sold. So if Fey finalizes the roll, all eyes will be on how will play alongside her (Amy Poehler? Elizabeth Banks? Kristen Wiig? Melissa McCarthy? Rebel Wilson? Anyone else with hilarious Bridesmaids quotes?).
Fey is set to co-star in The Muppets...Again, which begins production shortly.
