Meryl Streep playing Tina Fey's mom in comedy
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Meryl Streep and Tina Fey will play a mother-daughter duo in a comedy to be directed by Stanley Tucci.
"Mommy & Me" is set up at Sony Pictures, which successfully paired Streep with another young actress, Amy Adams, in last year's "Julie & Julia." Plotlines are under wraps although it spotlights the thorny and funny sides of mother-daughter relationships.
Tucci, whose directing credits include "Big Night" and "Blind Date," co-starred with Streep in both "Julie & Julia" and "The Devil Wears Prada." It's unclear at this time if Tucci would appear in the movie or just stick to directing.
Fey, meanwhile, is slowly building her film resume, working on features during her time in between seasons of "30 Rock." "Date Night," the spring action comedy which also starred Steve Carell, has grossed just over $98 million domestically.
