Paramount will release its untitled Tina Fey comedy in March 4, 2016, the studio announced Monday.
Fey optioned the book and trusted frequent collaborator Robert Carlock (“30 Rock”) to handle the adaptation. She also produced the film through her Little Stranger banner along with Lorne Michaels, Broadway Video and Ian Bryce.
In 2002, Barker (Fey) arrived in Kabul as a journalist who could only speak English and had little idea how to do the “Taliban Shuffle” between Afghanistan and Pakistan. As she delved deeper into the region, her love for the hapless countries grew along with her fear for their future stability.
