“Ghostbusters” and “Spy” director Paul Feig is in advanced talks to direct Mindy Kaling and Emma Thompson in an untitled comedy for Fox 2000.
Set in the world of late-night talk shows, the project is described as being in the vein of “The Devil Wears Prada” and “Broadcast News.”
Kaling wrote the script for the film and produces with Scott Rudin, Howard Klein and Jesse Henderson. She’s currently filming Gary Ross’ “Ocean’s Eight” and will soon join Ava DuVernay’s “A Wrinkle in Time”.
