Tina Fey looks set to join Jason Bateman in a new comedy.

The Date Night actress - whose award-winning TV show 30 Rock recently came to an end after seven seasons - is in talks about a role in This Is Where I Leave You, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The movie is based on a book by Jonathan Tropper and focuses on a man (Jason) whose dad dies after making one last request - that his dysfunctional family come together under one roof to spend at least a week together after the funeral.

If Tina signs up she will play the older sister of Jason's character in the film.

The movie also requires a romantic female lead, and stars including Isla Fisher and Zoe Saldana are said to have read for that part.

This Is Where I Leave You will be directed by Shawn Levy.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

It feels like friends are few and far between. If you're not getting the help you need, ask why. It may be because you have been so preoccupied with work. Skipping special occasions and failing to return phone calls causes resentment. You have to be more engaged to sustain loving bonds. Call someone you've missed. It may take a few tries, but it's worth the effort. Be forthright about why you have been out of touch. Communication is the cornerstone of every healthy relationship.More
