Jason Bateman Set for GAME NIGHT Comedy
Jason Bateman is set to star in a fun dark comedy called Game Night, which is "about a group of couples caught up in a very real game night. They get together regularly to play games together but on this night, things get real and it becomes a murder mystery."
The movie is set up at New Line Cinema, and according to Deadline it will be an ensemble comedy in the same vein as Horrible Bosses. The film was pitched to the studio by Mark Perez, who will also write the script. He's the guy that brought us Disney's The Country Bears and Universal’s Accepted.
This sounds like it has potential to be a very fun movie. I loved Horrible Bosses, so if it delivers on that level of comedy, I'll be a happy man.
