Tina Fey is in final negotiations to join Shawn Levy's upcoming comedy This Is Where I Leave You.

Jason Bateman stars as the head of an unorthodox Jewish family forced to fulfill his father's dying wish that requires his estranged siblings to sit Shivah for an entire week inside the same house. The project is an adaption of a book written by author Jonathan Tropper.

Tina Fey will be portraying Jason Bateman's sister, who is married to a man suffering from brain damage. Ari Graynor, Isla Fisher, Zoe Saldana and Mary Elizabeth Winstead are all up for the role of his love interest with Kathryn Hahn playing his sister-in-law.

Tina Fey is currently shooting The Muppets... Again!, which is in production in Europe.

Production is expected to begin this June in New York.
