Last month, it was announced that Meryl Streep and Tina Fey (!) would be starring together in an as yet unwritten script Mommy & Me, to be directed by Stanley Tucci. No details were given at the time, but the Hollywood Cog offers details on the treatment. It’s a mother-daughter comedy about a control freak mother (Fey) of a 3 year old who loses her job and is forced to move back in with her overbearing mother (Streep). The two then begin to battle over how the child should be raised.
And if it follows typical sitcom conventions, of course, the three-year-old will be duct taped down the center, and Streep and Fey will each raise one-half of the toddler.
