Melissa McCarthy & Jason Bateman Team Up For New Movie!


These two are on fire when it comes to making movies!

Jason Bateman is set to star and produce the upcoming Universal comedy ID Theft and has just signed the Bridesmaids superstar to co-star in it with him.

According to Deadline, the movie was originally about a guy who gets his identity stolen by another guy. This all changed after Bateman saw Melissa McCarthy in the summer hit and pushed for her to be written in.

So it looks like Bateman's character's identity won't be stolen by a man but by a woman now. Nice!

Shooting is believed to begin in April 2012, once McCarthy's show Mike & Molly goes on hiatus. I'm actually looking forward to this movie, sounds original and with these two in the lead I'm sure it's going to get a lot of laughs.
