Ellen DeGeneres is set to play Mother Nature in an upcoming untitled comedy from Sex and the City writer/producer Jenny Bicks. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film is being produced by Walden Media.

The project finds Mother Earth returning to her planet for the first time since its creation. DeGeneres stated, "I've always wanted to control the weather. Nothing will stop me from doing this. Neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet. I may be thinking of the postal service. But I'm really excited about the movie."

The comedy is being fast-tracked for a potential summer shoot in Los Angeles. The production will happen while Ellen is on hiatus from her talk show.
