Family ties

It’s happening! It’s really happening! It’s like the skies have opened up! It’s like the heavens are weeping – WITH JOY! The Meryl Streep/Tina Fey mother-daughter movie is happening. Sony has optioned the package, which is still in the treatment stage. But who needs a full script when you have Meryl, Tina and Stanley Tucci directing? This news is so momentous, I feel like it should be a national holiday. I feel like this should be celebrated in song. Can anyone sculpt? I feel like a statue is in order. Also, is it too early to start standing in line for my ticket?

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the tentatively titled “Mommy & Me” will “spotlights the thorny and funny sides of mother-daughter relationships.” But, hell, it can spotlight whatever it wants. It’s Tina Fey. It’s Meryl Streep. If they read the phone book together for 90 minutes I’d still watch devotedly while chomping down on a tub of popcorn. In fact, the only way this movie could be more awesome is if Helen Mirren signed on to play Meryl’s lesbian lover. Oh, and then Lena Headey signed on to play Tina’s lesbian lover. What? We’re dreaming big here, people. BIG.

LMAO - this coould be fun, but could we add to the mix that Tina and Meryl are kick ass bounty hunters as well?

Well, seems someone's dreams have come true ;-) And while we are dreaming big: I want Jane Lynch in this film: I want to see more of the Meryl Streep-Jane Lynch "Julie and Julia" magic!

I vote for Angela Basset as their psychologist advisor! (I also wish I`d have Meryl´s plastic surgeon. This guy is subtle!)

In what way does Tina Fey look like she could be Meryl's daughter other than the fact that they ae both "white"? I guess that's why they call it a "movie" eh?
