This Is Where I Leave YouThe film adaptation of This Is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper, (Penguin/Dutton, 2009) is now set for release on Sept. 12 of next year (via Deadline)

The movie stars Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Adam Driver, Jane Fonda, Rose Byrne and Kathryn Hahn and is directed by Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum; Date Night). Tropper is the screenwriter.

The novel, Tropper’s fifth, topped many 2009 best books lists and was a NYT best seller. About a family coming together reluctantly to sit shiva for their father, Carolyn See praised it in the Washington Post, “This is a beautiful novel about men — their lust and rage and sweetness. Read it — or take it as a gift — when you next go on a dreaded family holiday.”

Tropper’s most recent novel, One Last Thing Before I Go, (Penguin/Dutton, 2012), was acquired by Paramount, to be produced by J. J. Abrams. In April, Mike Nichols was reportedly in talks to direct it (via The Hollywood Reporter).
