Tina Fey joins Jason Bateman for comedy THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU

Does this news make you all warm and fuzzy inside? No? THEN STFU. 

No, but seriously. Bateman + Fey in a family comedy? Yes please. 

Tina Fey continues filling up her busy post-30 Rock schedule with another killer-sounding role, this one as an older sister to Bateman in the family-centric film This is Where I Leave You. 

The film features Bateman as the one grown sibling keeping the large family together at their childhood home after their father passes away. Fey will play one of the sisters, with the other siblings still yet to be cast. 

This is Where I Leave You will be directed by Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum, Date Night), so it has about a 50/50 chance of being really shitty. I would hope that with the beginnings of a killer cast, he could step up his A-game and give us something closer to Date Night, and something less like the upcoming shitshow that is sure to be The Internship.
