First, they starred together in SNL. Then came Baby Mama, and the Golden Globes. Now, the comedy stars and real-life friends are due to reunite onscreen as sisters in an upcoming comedy

Good news or the best news? Six years after they starred together in Baby Mama, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are set to reunite on the big screen. Deadline reports that Poehler is in final talks to join Fey in Universal’s upcoming sister comedy The Nest.

The film will see the Golden Globe hosts — and real-life friends — starring as “thirtysomething sisters who come home to find their parents’ house has been put up for sale.” The two then spend one last weekend in their childhood home, where hijinks ensue. Fey is producing the project along with Jay Roach (who worked on the Meet The Parents films), and Poehler will also serve as an executive producer.

And the news keeps getting better: Pitch Perfect director Jason Moore is slated to direct The Nest, and the screenplay was written by longtime Saturday Night Live writer Paula Pell.
