ABOUT “THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU”
The dramatic comedy “This is Where I Leave You” is directed by Shawn Levy, and based on the hilarious and poignant bestselling novel by Tropper. It features a starring ensemble cast including Golden Globe winner Jason Bateman (“Arrested Development”); Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Tina Fey (“30 Rock”); and two-time Oscar® winner, multiple Golden Globe honoree and 2013 Emmy Award nominee Jane Fonda (“Klute,” “Coming Home,” HBO’s “The Newsroom”).
When their father passes away, four grown siblings, bruised and banged up by their respective adult lives, are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-have-beens. Confronting their history and the frayed states of their relationships among the people who know and love them best, they ultimately reconnect in hysterical and emotionally affecting ways amid the chaos, humor, heartache and redemption that only families can provide–driving us insane even as they remind us of our truest, and often best, selves.
Shawn Levy, who helmed the blockbuster “Night at the Museum” films, as well as “Date Night” and “Real Steel,” directs from a screenplay by Jonathan Tropper.
The film also stars Adam Driver (HBO’s “Girls”), Rose Byrne (“Bridesmaids,” “X-Men: First Class”), Corey Stoll (“House of Cards,” “Midnight in Paris”), Kathryn Hahn (NBC’s “Parks and Recreation”).
“This is Where I Leave You” is produced by Paula Weinstein (“The Perfect Storm,” HBO’s “Recount”) Shawn Levy, and Jeffrey Levine (“The Family Man”). Mary McLaglen (“Real Steel,” “The Proposal”) and Jonathan Tropper serve as executive producers. The creative filmmaking team includes director of photography Terry Stacey (“Safe Haven,” “50/50″), production designer Ford Wheeler (“Rachel Getting Married”), editor Dean Zimmerman (“Real Steel”) and costume designer Susan Lyall (“RED”). The music is by Oscar®-winning composer Michael Giacchino (“Up”).
Warner Bros. Pictures presents a Spring Creek Production, a 21 Laps Production, a Shawn Levy Film: “This is Where I Leave You,” opening September 12, 2014. It will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment company.
