Jennifer Garner to Star in Body Switch Comedy ‘Family Leave’ at Netflix
Jennifer Garner will star in a comedy film “Family Leave” for Netflix in which she and her entire family have embalmed with another family in another part of the world.
“Family Leave” is based on a book by Amy Krause Rosenthal called “Bedtime for Mummy”. Kruse Rosenthal also wrote the book “Yes Day”, which Netflix also made into an upcoming film that also stars Garner.
In “Family Leave”, when Brenners wakes up for a complete family body switch, he quickly realizes that this is what happened to a family on the other side of the world. They must unite with this group of strangers and determine how to undo the body switch, all in different bodies before navigating daily life too late.
Victoria Strawse will write the screenplay. No director is attached.
Garner will also produce “Family Leave” as Nicole King for Linden Entertainment and Lawrence Gray and Ben Everard for Gray Matter Productions. Jason Bryan Rosenthal is the executive producer.
Garner’s “Yes Day” will debut on Netflix on March 12. She is also starring in “The Adam Project” from director Sean Levy, co-starring Ryan Reynolds, Zoe Saldana and Mark Rafallo.
