Meryl Streep and Tina Fey fans, brace yourselves: a new movie collaboration between the Oscar and Emmy winners may be coming to the big screen.

The mastermind behind the project? Streep’s The Devil Wears Prada and Julie & Julia costar Stanley Tucci, who would be directing the mother-daughter comedy tentatively titled Mommy & Me, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The project, which Tucci would also produce, is in its beginning stages – no script and no writers signed on just yet – but the package has been making its rounds to studios and a number of them have shown interest, sources tells the paper.

If all goes according to plan, Fey, who once told Entertainment Weekly she always dreamed of working with Streep, would get her wish. The only hitch? The 30 Rock star told the magazine she wanted to play Streep’s mom.
