Two of my favorite funny people on the planet, Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy, have a new comedy coming out and we have photos and the very first trailer as well! Directed by Horrible Bosses’ Seth Gordon, the all-star comedy that follows a woman named Dina (McCarthy). Unlimited funds have allowed her 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 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 (Bateman) 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 co-stars Jon Favreau, John Cho, Genesis Rodriguez, Amanda Peet, Eric Stonestreet, and rapper T.I. Check it out in theaters on February 8th, 2013. Check out our gallery images and the trailer below:
