Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are joining forces once again to play sisters in a new film titled The Nest.

The Parks and Recreation star is nearing a deal to join her friend Fey in the comedy directed by Pitch Perfect's Jason Moore and written by Paula Pell, who was a writer at Saturday Night Live during the comediennes' tenure on the U.S. sketch comedy show.

According to TheWrap.com, The Nest centres on onscreen siblings Fey and Poehler who are devastated to find out their parents are selling the house they grew up in, so the sisters decide to spend one last wild weekend in their childhood home.

Fey and Poehler last appeared on the big screen together in 2008 comedy Baby Mama, and they co-hosted the Golden Globes for the second year in a row in January (14).
