Imagine it: Emmy-winning Tina Fey and Oscar winner Meryl Streep playing a mother-daugher duo on the big screen! The movie has no finished script and no assigned writer yet, but hey, when you’re Hollywood big-wigs you need only a concept and some committed A-list actors before circulating an idea to the studios. But it sure sounds like a winner, with Stanley Tucci directing celebrity moms Streep and Fey in a film tentatively titled, “Mommy & Me.”
Tucci and Streep have worked together before in The Devil Wears Prada and Julie and Julia. While Tucci will direct the movie, it’s unclear if he’ll also star. I hope so! Although no studio has officially signed on yet, it’s only a matter of time given the players involved and the early interest. Who could turn this down? Especially given the recent success of female-oriented movies. Read the whole LA Times article about the project here.
