Jason Bateman and Nicole Kidman join The Family Fang

Bateman

Jason Bateman is set to direct The Family Fang, as well as star in it opposite Nicole Kidman.

According to Deadline, Batman has set the project as his directorial follow-up to the well-received Bad Words, which debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival and was swiftly purchased for distribution by Focus Features (at a cool $6 million).

The script – based on Kevin Wilson’s book of the same name – comes from David Lindsay-Abaire, and concerns a family of troubled performance artists who reunite for one last gig.

Lindsay-Abaire’s play Rabbit Hole was adapted into a feature film in 2010. Kidman starred in the pic, and collected a Best Actress Oscar nomination for her troubles.
