Tucci, who was nominated for an Oscar for his role in The Lovely Bones this year, will produce and direct. He has previously directed films including Big Night and Blind Date.
The project co-stars Emmy- and Golden Globe-winner Tina Fey ( Date Night, 30 Rock) as Streep's character's daughter, according to TheWrap.
Streep is slated to portray the UK's Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady with Jim Broadbent in a Mike Nichols film called Great Hope Springs and may join the satire Dewey with Reese Witherspoon, Paul Giamatti and Sacha Baron Cohen.
Tucci will be seen in four upcoming films this year including Wall Street thriller Margin Call, with Jeremy Irons and Kevin Spacey, comedy Easy A, the animated Cat Tale and Burlesque with Cher and Christina Aguilera. Plus in 2011, he appears in Marvel's Captain America.
Up next for Fey is her voice in animated comedy Megamind with former Saturday Night Live colleague Will Ferrell.
