(Relaxnews) – The two “Saturday Night Live” alums will reunite for this upcoming Universal comedy, Deadline.com reports.

In “The Nest,” Amy Poehler and Tina Fey will play two 30-something sisters who decide to throw one last party in their parents’ house, which is about to be sold.

The comedy will be helmed by Jason Moore, who directed the 2012 musical movie “Pitch Perfect,” starring Anna Kendrick (“Twilight”), Anna Camp (“True Blood”) and Brittany Snow (“Gossip Girl”). The script was written by “SNL” writer Paula Pell.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler met on the set of the NBC sketch comedy show and went on to become frequent collaborators. Since the early 2000s, the two stars have worked together on several projects, including the features “Mean Girls” and “Man of the Year.” Their last collaboration, “Baby Mama,” dates back to 2008.

In 2013 and 2014, the duo teamed up to host the 70th and 71st Golden Globe Awards ceremonies.
