Tina Fey Teaming With ‘Pitch Perfect’ Director Jason Moore and ‘SNL’ Writer Paula Pell for ‘The Nest’

30 Rock‘s seven-season run on NBC has come to an end, but creator/star Tina Fey‘s big screen career is just heating up. She has Admission with Paul Rudd lined up for release in March, and is now headed to shoot The Muppets… Again in London.
For her next move beyond that, she’s looking to team with Pitch Perfect director Jason Moore and Saturday Night Live writer Paula Pell on a Universal Pictures comedy titled The Nest. Hit the jump for more details.
Could the Plastics be headed to Broadway? If Tina Fey has her way, quite possibly. During an interview at the SAG Awards this weekend, the Mean Girls screenwriter revealed that she and her husband (30 Rock composer Jeff Richmond) are working on a musical version of the high school comedy classic. And while casting has yet to begin, Fey joked that she could just have a role for noted movie fan Mariah Carey. Hit the jump to keep reading.

Though Disney’s The Muppets sequel will be a big-screen release, Kermit and company apparently haven’t forgotten their small-screen roots. Last month, Ricky Gervais and Ty Burrell signed to play two key human characters in the film. Now, Tina Fey is rounding out the cast as the female lead.
The plotline and other details are being kept vague for now, but thanks to a tipster who worked in production on the last film, we also have some word on what the title might be. Read on after the jump.

For high school seniors, college admissions board members can seem almost godlike in their power over the futures. From the time the kids send in their application to the time they hear back, the fate of the world seems to rest in the schools’ hands.* But as the new trailer for Admission shows, the process isn’t always a pleasant one for the folks on the other end, either.
In the new film by Paul Weitz, Tina Fey plays a Princeton admissions officer who takes a recruiting trip to an unusual school run by her former college classmate Paul Rudd. It turns into a potentially life-changing event when she crosses paths with a boy (Nat Wolff) who may or may not be the son she gave up long ago. Watch the video after the jump.

Tina Fey built her career on the fast-paced comedy of Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock, but with the latter almost at an end it’s time for her to move on to the next phase. If the trailer for Paul Weitz‘s Admission for any indication, that may just end up being movie stardom. Perhaps even as something of a dramatic actor.
Although Admission is billed as a dramatic comedy, it represents a more serious turn than anything we’ve seen from Fey before. Fey plays Portia, a Princeton admissions officer who’s forced to confront a painful secret during what initially appears to be a routine recruiting trip. Paul Rudd also stars, as a former classmate of Portia’s who harbors a crush on her, and Nat Wolff plays a teenager who may have ties to her past. Watch the trailer after the jump.
