IDENTITY THIEF (previously titled ID Theft) is an upcoming comedy film directed by Seth Gordon (Four Christmases, Horrible Bosses, Freakonomics), starring Jason Bateman alongside Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids), John Cho, Amanda Peet, Jon Favreau, and Clark Duke (Kick-Ass). The story follows a man played by Bateman who becomes a victim of identity theft by McCarthy’s character.
Unlimited funds have allowed Diana (McCarthy) to live it up near Miami, buying whatever strikes her fancy. There’s only one glitch: The ID she’s using belongs to “Sandy Bigelow Patterson” and that's 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 bribe, coax and wrangle her the 2,000 miles to Denver, he will discover just how tough it is to get your name back.
