The story, written by former Saturday Night Live writer Paula Pell, centers on two sisters (Tina Fey and Amy Poehler) who decide to throw one last massive party in their childhood home, before it is sold, which turns into a "cathartic experience" for the siblings and their friends. Maya Rudolph is playing a longtime childhood friend of the sisters, with James Brolin signing on earlier this week to play Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's father, and Ike Barinholtz starring as the male lead.
In related news, Maya Rudolph has also joined the cast of The Greens Are Gone, alongside Cary Elwes, Anton Yelchin, Catherine Keener and Ryan Eggold. Peer Pedersen is directing from his own screenplay, although no plot details were given.
