Brilliant Casting Alert: Meryl Streep to Play Tina Fey's Mom

Best. Idea. Ever. And we have Stanley Tucci -- who's directing the new comedy, Mommy & Me -- to thank!

Two of our favorite leading ladies, Meryl Streep and Tina Fey, are finally coming together for a movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The Julie & Julia star and 30 Rock funny lady will join forces to play mother and daughter in a new comedy, directed by Stanley Tucci, called Mommy & Me.

So far no plot details have been released, but it's being reported that the movie will explore "the thorny and funny sides of mother-daughter relationships." Thorny and funny? These two will knock it out of the park.

It may be the first time Streep teams up on a project with Fey, but the acclaimed movie star will be reuniting with her Julia costar, Tucci -- the Oscar-nominated actor-director who was previously behind the camera to co-direct another family-themed film, the 1996 critical darling Big Night (in which he played brother to Tony Shalhoub).

Streep, 61, embraced light-hearted fare in 2009's dramedy hit It's Complicated, while Fey, 40, appeared on the big screen opposite Steve Carell for April's comic caper Date Night.

Who do you think will be funnier in their new movie, Meryl Streep or Tina Fey? Chime in below!
