First Trailer, Posters, Images For IDENTITY THIEF Starring Jason Bateman And Melissa McCarthy
HORRIBLE BOSSES’ Jason Bateman and BRIDESMAIDS’ Melissa McCarthy lead an all-star cast of IDENTITY THIEF in this first trailer for the comedy. The film is centered around a regular guy who is forced to extreme measures to clear his name. With everything to lose after his identity is stolen, he’ll find out how crazed you can get trying to settle a bad credit score.
I already like the chemistry between the two. Melissa McCarthy is at the top of her game now and this type of physical comedy is tailor made for the Academy-Award® nominated actress. Plus who doesn’t love a good laugh after the first of the year to help relieve some of those winter doldrums. With the additional cast and crew, IDENTITY THIEF looks hilarious. The movie is directed by HORRIBLE BOSSES’ Seth Gordon, nevermind it’s from the producer of this summer’s funniest movie TED – Scott Stuber. Also producing are Bateman and Pamela Abdy (upcoming 47 RONIN). The film co-stars Jon Favreau, Amanda Peet, Tip “T.I.” Harris, Genesis Rodriguez, Morris Chestnut, John Cho, Robert Patrick and Eric Stonestreet.
Unlimited funds have allowed Diana (McCarthy) to live it up on the outskirts of Miami, where the queen of retail buys whatever strikes her fancy. There’s only one glitch: The ID she’s using to finance these sprees reads “Sandy Bigelow Patterson”…. and it belongs to an accounts rep (Bateman) who lives halfway across the U.S. With only one week to hunt down the con artist before his world implodes, the real Sandy Bigelow Patterson heads south to confront the woman with an all-access pass to his life. And as he attempts to bribe, coax and wrangle her the 2,000 miles to Denver, one easy target will discover just how tough it is to get your name back.
IDENTITY THIEF will hit theaters February 8, 2013.
