Tina Fey Goes to Afghanistan in the Whiskey Tango Foxtrot Trailer

By

Apparently not heeding the abysmal failure of Bill Murray’s Rock the Kasbah, Tina Fey is going to Afghanistan. In Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, Fey plays an "unmarried, childless" person who goes to Afghanistan to report from the frontlines. Once there, she experiences some cultural friction (“Cover yourself, you shameless whore!” one Afghan woman says to Fey) and general war-zone danger. As the trailer shows, she also meets Margot Robbie, Martin Freeman, Alfred Molina, and Billy Bob Thornton, each with their own accent. The film, which Fey's frequent collaborator Robert Carlock adapted from Kim Barker's 2011 memoir The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan, opens on March 4, 2016.
