Real Steel director Shawn Levy is in negotiations to direct an adaptation of the Jonathan Tropper comedy novel This is Where I Leave You for Warner Bros. Adam Shankman (Hairspray) was previously set to direct the film with Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, Malin Akerman, Zac Efron and Leslie Mann set to star. The project ended up being put on hold when Bateman and Shankman left the project.
The story follows "four siblings who come home to sit ‘shiva’ for their deceased father. They are trapped in the house for seven days, and all the skeletons are bared."
According to Variety, Levy wants this to be the next movie he makes and plans to shoot it next summer. Shankman is still attached to produce the project. Tropper adapted his own book into a screenplay, he also adapted the script for the Harvey remake that Steven Spielberg was attached to direct at one point. »
