While we are perhaps more used to seeing them working together (on Saturday Night Live or presenting the Golden Globes, for example), it has been a long six years since Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's last movie double act, Baby Mama (2008).
Directed by Jason Moore, the film finds siblings Jane and Maura (Fey and Poehler) coming home to discover that their parents (James Brolin and Dianne Wiest) are selling the family home and moving to a small condo. The ladies need to find alternative lodgings now that The Nest (which was also the film's original title) is no longer open to them.
As a last hurrah at the old homestead, they decide to spend a final weekend there together, throwing an wild party. Ike Barinholtz (Eastbound And Down) plays amorous neighbour James, while Maya Rudolph (Bridesmaids), Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live) and John Leguizamo (Moulin Rouge!) are also among the cast.
Fey and Poehler's Saturday Night Live colleague and frequent collaborator Paula Pell wrote the script, and Fey is also producing alongside Jay Roach and John Lyons. Shooting took place last summer, and Sisters is out in the UK on 11 March next year.
