Akerman, Sudeikis Are Set To “Leave You”

Malin Akerman and Jason Sudeikis are in talks to join Adam Shankman’s ensemble comedy “This Is Where I Leave You” for Warner Bros. Pictures says Variety.

Based on the Jonathan Tropper novel, Jason Bateman plays a man whose father dies but tasks his dysfunctional family with one last request: spend a week following the funeral together under the same roof.

Akerman would play Bateman’s wife whose affair with his boss (Sudeikis) goes public. Also in negotiations for roles are Zac Efron as Bateman’s brother, Leslie Mann as his sister and Goldie Hawn as his mother.
