In one of the best episodes of “The Office,” Michael Scott goes to Canada on a business trip, joined by Andy and Oscar, where he experiences the exotic customs and traditions of Winnipeg. And the brewing comedy “Women In Business” sounds like a riff on that idea.
Emma Stone, Kate McKinnon and Jillian Bell are attached to star in the picture that follows two competitive businesswomen who head to Canada on a business trip, only to find it derailed by an intern they hire off Craigslist. The project comes from the pen of Laura Steinel (Amazon‘s “Red Oaks“), and has Jake Szymanski (“7 Days In Hell,” “Mike And Dave Need Wedding Dates“) attached to direct.
With that trio of comedic star power, the movie sounds like it has “big hit” written all over it. Indeed, “Women In Business” saw various studios battling over it, but 20th Century Fox emerged victorious. [THR]
