Director Seth Gordon is coming hot off of last year’s Horrible Bosses and he’s bringing with him Jason Bateman to star in Identity Thief. The film also stars Bridesmaids Melissa McCarthy. The two will be paired together for a basic comedy about a guy tracking down the person who stole his identity.
Bateman and McCarthy seem to have some good chemistry, with Bateman playing his usual self and McCarthy following suit. The two might be able to make this one work though, which is more than I can say for Horrible Bosses.
Jon Favreau, Amanda Pete and T.I. also star in the film, which opens on February 8th, 2013.
