Tina Fey looks set to join Jason Bateman in a new comedy.

The Date Night actress - whose award-winning TV show 30 Rock recently came to an end after seven seasons - is in talks about a role in This Is Where I Leave You, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The movie is based on a book by Jonathan Tropper and focuses on a man (Jason) whose dad dies after making one last request - that his dysfunctional family come together under one roof to spend at least a week together after the funeral.

If Tina signs up she will play the older sister of Jason's character in the film.

The movie also requires a romantic female lead, and stars including Isla Fisher and Zoe Saldana are said to have read for that part.

This Is Where I Leave You will be directed by Shawn Levy.
