Amy Poehler Is Making a Movie for Netflix With All of Our, I Mean HER, Best Friends
Oh, hell yeah. This is going to be amazing. A new Amy Poehler Netflix movie will go into production at the end of this month. As if a movie produced and directed by and starring Amy wasn’t awesome enough, this one takes it several awesome steps further. The movie, named Wine Country, will star several of Amy’s real-life BFFs, and reunite her with some of her SNL writers. I cannot WAIT.
The Amy Poehler Netflix movie Wine CountryÂ follows a group of friends during a 50th birthday weekend in Napa. I’m sure hilarity will ensue.
The movie was co-written by SNL alums Emily Spivey and Liz Cackowski. Spivey also stars in the movie, along side Maya Rudolph, Amy Poehler, Ana Gasteyer, Paula Pell, and Rachel Dratch. AND PLUS ALSO, guess who makes a featured appearance? None other than Amy’s ride-or-die, Tina Fey. I’m already laughing and the movie hasn’t even been made.
Wine CountryÂ reunites Amy, Rachel, Tina, Maya, and Paula, who all starred in Sisters together a few years ago.
I love when groups of my favorite funny ladies get together to make movie magic. The all-female Ghostbusters reboot was hilarious! And I’m sorry, that trailer for the female Oceans movie? Get the entire hell out of here with that one. Studios are (hopefully) waking up to the fact that women (hi, us here) really like watching movies made for and by OTHER WOMEN. More of these, please!
Netflix tweeted a funny video starring the Wine Country ladies to announce the film. Seriously, I can’t wait. Why can’t it be here now?

Like I mentioned above, production on the movie is expected to start sometime at the end of this month. So FINGERS CROSSED, it’ll hit Netflix toward the end of 2018. But Netflix, if you’re listening, the sooner the better.
