Abigail Spencer has had a great success recently, although you’d be forgiven for not realising. However she played May in Oz The Great And Powerful. Now she’s got a new role, as Deadline reports that Timothy Olyphant, Ben Schwartz and Spencer have joined the cast of This Is Where I Leave You.
They’ll star alongside the previously cast Jason Bateman, Rose Byrne, Tina Fey, Kathryn Hahn, Jane Fonda, and Corey Stoll in the movie, which is based on Jonathan Tropper’s book of the same name. It follows four adult siblings who reunite for their father’s funeral. Their trip home turns out to be longer than expected, when they find out their dad’s dying wish is for all four of them to spend a week in the house they grew up in. Inevitably this causes long simmer tensions to emerge.
Olyphant is set to play Horry, a former flame of Fey’s Wendy, Schwartz is the rabbi who wants everyone to think he’s cool, while Spender is Bateman’s wife, who is cheating on him with his boss.
Shawn Levy will direct from a screenplay by Jonathan Tropper. Production is scheduled to begin this June in New York.
