Amy Poehler has kept herself busy since Parks & Rec ended. She’ll be heard as the voice of Joy in Pixar’s Inside Out later this month and her movie Sisters — which she’ll appear in opposite Tina Fey — will hit theaters later this year.

Aside from these movies — and the number of TV projects she is currently producing — Poehler is set to reunite with SNL alumni Will Ferrell in the upcoming New Line comedy The House. According to Variety, the actress is in negotiations to star alongside Ferrell which would be their first film work together since 2007’s Blades of Glory:

Ferrell will play a husband who joins with his neighbors to start an illegal casino in his basement after he and his wife blow their daughter’s college fund. Poehler will play his wife.

Andrew J. Cohen (Funny People, Neighbors) will be making his feature film directorial debut on The House which will be produced by both Ferrell and his longtime comedy partner Adam McKay.
