Oh happy day. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are reuniting for the silver screen — playing sisters, no less.

The film, titled The Nest, will be a comedy developed by Universal, they confirmed to Mashable.

The movie is based on Paula Pell’s screenplay about two 30-something sisters who return home to realize their parents are selling their house. The sisters plan a wild all-out bash to celebrate like the old days. Hilarious antics ensue.

While Fey has been on board for some time, working alongside director Jason Moore (Pitch Perfect), Universal confirms that Poehler is now “in final negotiations” to co-star and co-produce with Fey.

The funny duo has been a comedic powerhouse since their days co-hosting Saturday Night Live‘s “Weekend Update” from 2004-2006. They later appeared together in Fey’s comedy Mean Girls in 2004 and then again in Baby Mama in 2008.

More recently, the real life pals have co-hosted the Golden Globes for the past two years. They are set to host again this year.
