While fans can’t wait for the next season of ‘Arrested Development‘ to hit Netflix sometime next year, star Jason Bateman isn’t relying on just that gig to make you laugh, having signed on to a new comedy alongside Zac Efron called ‘This Is Where I Leave You.’

The Warner Bros. movie will also star Goldie Hawn and Leslie Mann in an adaptation of the Jonathan Tropper novel. According to Deadline, ‘This Is Where I Leave You’ is the story of “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.”

Adam Shankman, who just finished ‘Rock of Ages‘ with Tom Cruise, is attached to direct. Goldie Hawn is attached to play the sibling’s mother, while Bateman, Efron and Mann will play the brothers and sister. They’re hoping to go into production by September, right about the time ‘Arrested Development’ should finish shooting.

It’ll be nice to see Goldie Hawn back on the big screen. She hasn’t been in a film since 2002′s ‘The Banger Sisters’ and has always been one of the great female comedic talents with such classics as ‘Foul Play’ and ‘Overboard.’ We’ll keep you updated on the project when more casting is announced.
