Owen Wilson is in talks to join Tina Fey in the drama, Admission, according to the folks from Vulture.

About a Boy director Paul Weitz is directing the adaptation of the Jean Hanff Korelitz novel, about an "Ivy League admissions officer (to be played by Fey) who strikes up a relationship with a potential student and is forced to confront a painful secret from her past as a result (Wilson if his people strike a deal). It'll be the first overtly dramatic role that Fey has taken, but surely with this cast and director there will be comedic elements.

Weitz is looking to get the film made through Focus Feature - where he made the ace About a Boy.
