Emma is slated to portray the esteemed talk show host, whose long-running program is in jeopardy of capsizing when she hires her first female writer (to be played by Mindy).
The currently untitled project is said to be a cross between The Devil Wears Prada and Broadcast News.
A heated bidding war is expected to ensue between studios for the package.
Emma can currently be seen onscreen in Bridget Jones’s Baby and will also pour her talents into Beauty and the Beast, set to hit theaters in March 2017. She will play Mrs. Potts in the live-action version of the tale as old as time.
As for Mindy, her show The Mindy Project is about to premiere its fifth season on Hulu.
