Jason Bateman is set to direct Nicole Kidman's new movie The Family Fang.
The Horrible Bosses actor will also star alongside the Oscar-winning actress in the film, reported Deadline.
The story is an adaptation of the Kevin Wilson novel and follows a couple of performance artists who routinely got their kids to take part in bizarre events when they were young.
The children, now adults, return home to find their parents are determined to pull off the act of a lifetime - and find themselves enlisted to help.
Mother-of-two Nicole snapped up the rights to the book in 2011 and has been developing it since then.
She is set to play a performance artist in the film.
