Sony Picks Up Meryl Streep–Tina Fey Comedy


As we predicted when word of the project first surfaced two weeks ago, it took no time at all for the Meryl Streep–Tina Fey mother-daughter comedy Mommy & Me to be picked up. Sony — which made Streep’s Julie & Julia last year — has acquired the film, which will be directed by Stanley Tucci. The story is said to “spotlight the thorny and funny sides of mother-daughter relationships,” but, frankly, it could be about Fey and Streep painting a wall for two hours and we’d still be there opening day.
