Get ready for it! Amy Poehler’s Netflix movie, Wine Country hasn’t even started filming, but we’re so ready for it. Netflix teased the comedy in a video tweet, calling it “Your new favorite movie,” along with the all of the flick’s stars. Oh, and they were doing what you totally wouldn’t expect.
Yep, that’s a video clip of Poehler, along with castmates Tina Fey, Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch, Emily Spivey, Ana Gasteyer and Paula Pell. And yes, they’re all just hanging out (presumably drinking wine) and singing along with Kenny Loggins’ “Whenever I Call You Friend.” Of course, this isn’t the first time the real-life friends have worked together. They’re famous former SNL stars!
The movie, which is directed and produced by Poehler, chronicles the BFFs during a 50th bday trip to “wine country” (that is, Napa). Even though filming won’t reportedly begin for another month or so, this is one highly anticipated movie.
Sadly, Netflix hasn’t announced a release date yet. But that’s okay. We can wait. That is, as long as we have our own little “wine country” (even if that just means a bottle of pinot and a Poehler-Fey double feature with Baby Mama and Sisters) to hold us over.
