Something epic just happened.
Sony has picked up “Mommy & Me,” the comedy package featuring Meryl Streep and Tina Fey as a mother-and-daughter duo to be directed by Stanley Tucci.
I already have great expectations for this film.
Storylines are under wraps, although it spotlights the thorny and funny sides of mother-daughter relationships.
Joby Harold wrote the treatment that went with the package and is exec producing with Tucci, Steve Buscemi and Joshua Astrachan. Wren Arthur, Lucy Barzun Donnelly and Tory Tunnell are producing.
Streep and Tucci have worked together on-screen in “Devil Wears Prada” and “Julie & Julia.” It’s unclear at this time if Tucci would appear in the movie or just stick to directing.
Not to be premature here, but does this mean that Tina Fey is working her way toward an Oscar to put on that mantle next to all those “30 Rock” Emmys?
