WB to Revive THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU with Jason Bateman

Related: THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU, Jason Bateman,

Warner Brothers' adaptation of Jonathan Tropper novel, THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU, is back on track. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio has re-enlested Jason Bateman for the film, and are now on the hunt to recast the roles - and find a new director.

In May of 2012, Adam Shankman (ROCK OF AGES) was attached to direct, and he had begun negotiations with stars to take on the lead roles. Included were Bateman, Zac Efron, Goldie Hawn, Jason Sudeikis, and more. Come November, Shankman was reportedly out, and Shawn Levy was in - for good, it appears.

Actors reportedly in talks for the second attempt at adapting THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU, aside from Bateman, include Zoe Saldana, Isla Fischer, and more, the site confirms.

Head on over to The Hollywood Reporter for the original report.

THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU, based upon Jonathan Topper's 2010 novel, picks up after a father's funeral, "the death of Judd Foxman's father marks The First Time that the entire Foxman family-including Judd's mother, brothers, and sister-have been together in years. Conspicuously absent: Judd's wife, Jen, whose fourteen-month affair with Judd's radio-shock-jock boss has recently become painfully public.

Simultaneously mourning the death of his father and the demise of his marriage, Judd joins the rest of the Foxmans as they reluctantly submit to their patriarch's dying request: to spend the seven days following the funeral together. In the same house. Like a family.

As the week quickly spins out of control, longstanding grudges resurface, secrets are revealed, and old passions reawakened. For Judd, it's a weeklong attempt to make sense of the mess his life has become while trying in vain not to get sucked into the regressive battles of his madly dysfunctional family. All of which would be hard enough without the bomb Jen dropped The Day Judd's father died: She's pregnant."
