Universal Pictures has unveiled two character posters from their upcoming comedy Identity Thief, which stars Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy. The movie is being directed by Seth Gordon and the story follows a man played by Bateman who becomes a victim of identity theft by McCarthy's character. Here's the synopsis:
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.
The movie also stars Jon Favreau, Amanda Peet, Tip "T.I." Harris, Genesis Rodriguez, Morris Chestnut, John Cho, Robert Patrick and Eric Stonestreet. The movie is set to be released February 8th, 2013.
