Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Will Play Sisters in The Nest

70th ANNUAL GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS -- Pictured: (l-r) Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, hosts on stage during the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 13, 2013.

We learned last year that Tina Fey would star in The Nest, a comedy helmed by Pitch Perfect director Jason Moore and based on a screenplay by longtime SNL writer Paula Pell, about two sisters who spend one last wild weekend in their childhood home before selling it. It seemed too much to ask that Amy Poehler would star as the other sister (though that didn't stop us), but according to Showbiz411, the BFFs/Golden Globes hosts are giving the people what they want. Poehler is in final negotiations to co-star in the film, Deadline reports. Don't strain yourself while you're high-fiving a million angels.
