• Amy Poehler, Tina Fey’s longtime friend, occasional co-star (Baby Mama, Mean Girls), one-time co-EW guest editor, and consistent Golden Globes co-host (and, you know, general star and force in her own right) is in final negotiations to join The Nest. She’d play Fey’s sister in the Paula Pell-scripted comedy that Pitch Perfect’s Jason Moore is set to direct. [The Wrap]

Charlize Theron is reportedly in talks to star in The Last Space, a drama about Sudanese refugee camps that Sean Penn is planning to direct. Adèle Exarchopoulos (Blue is the Warmest Color) also stars. [The Wrap]
