McCarthy & Bateman Traveling at Odds in a New 'Identity Thief' Trailer
The first trailer for Identity Thief set up the game with Jason Bateman tracking down Melissa McCarthy, a woman living the high life by stealing his identity. Now a new trailer for the film from Horrible Bosses director Seth Gordon gives us even more laughs and some new plot information. In addition to the difficult task of getting McCarthy to the cops back home, there's some dangerous people in pursuit. Plus, we get a glimpse of the sidetracks that include a saucy cowboy played by Eric Stonestreet ("Modern Family"). Hopefully Gordon brings a comedy every bit as good as Horrible Bosses, or even better.
Here's the first trailer for Seth Gordon's Identity Theft, originally from Apple:
Unlimited funds have allowed Diana (Melissa 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. Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) directs from a script by Craig Mazin and the film arrives in theaters February 8th early next year.
