Frank Oz has signed on to direct the British comedy Death at a Funeral, written by Dean Craig.

The cast includes Matthew Macfadyen, Peter Dinklage, and Ewen Bremner and it follows a dysfunctional British family as they gather to mourn the passing of their patriarch, says The Hollywood Reporter. When a man threatens to expose the patriarch's secret unless he is paid a princely sum, the man's two sons try to do everything to keep the secret from leaking to the guests, and what should be a heartfelt good-bye turns into a calamity.

There's no production schedule yet for Death at a Funeral.
