Amy Poehler is reportedly in final talks to join A.C.O.D., a 2008 Black List–ed comedy about a “grown man who finds himself still caught in the crossfire of his parents divorce.” Also attached to the project is Poehler’s Parks and Recreation co-star Adam Scott, who will play the grown man in question. (Richard Jenkins and Catherine O’Hara will be his parents.) If we understand correctly, Poehler is slated to play Scott’s new stepmother, meaning the likelihood of a large screen Leslie-Ben make-out is unlikely. Or maybe it’s very likely? They do have very charming chemistry! And crazier things have happened in movie divorces.
