Emma Stone, Kate McKinnon and Jillian Bell are set to star in “Women in Business”.
Twentieth Century Fox has just acquired the script to the upcoming comedy after winning a heated bidding war involving multiple studios.
“Women in Business” is written by up-and-coming writer Laura Steinel who is also credited as writer of Amazon’s series “Red Oaks”.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the comedy centers on “two competitive women who are sent on a business trip to Canada. There, they hire a third woman off Craigslist to act as their intern, which derails their trip.”
Stone, McKinnon and Bell are attached as the lead stars while “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates” director Jake Szymanski is on board to helm the comedy.
Stone is fresh off completing the filming of “Battle of the Sexes” and will next star in Disney’s live-action “Cruella” in addition to reprising her voice role as Eep in “The Croods 2”.
McKinnon is the star of Paul Feig’s upcoming “Ghostbusters (2016)” reboot and also has a voice role in “Angry Birds”.
Bell made a breakthrough in “22 Jump Street” and is attached to star in “Office Christmas Party” opposite Jennifer Aniston.
