Comedienne Maya Rudolph is reuniting with her former “Saturday Night Live” co-stars Tina Fey and Amy Poehler in upcoming film” The Nest.”

The “Bridesmaids” star joins the movie as a childhood friend of Fey and Poehler, who play sisters devastated to find out their parents are selling the house they grew up in, and decide to spend one last wild weekend in their childhood home.

“The Nest” script was penned by Paula Pell, who was a writer at “Saturday Night” Live during the comediennes’ tenure on the sketch comedy show.

Rudolph worked on “Saturday Night Live” from 2000 to 2007.
