Universal Pictures has released a new trailer and quad poster for Seth Gordon’s forthcoming comedy Identity Thief.
The film revolves around an accounts rep who has a week to travel across the country and track down the con artist who stole his identity.
The film stars Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy as the central pairing, with on Favreau, Amanda Peet, Eric Stonestreet, John Cho, Tip “T.I.” Harris, Genesis Rodriguez, Robert Patrick, and Morris Chestnut supporting.
Identity Thief is out in Ireland on March 22nd.
Horrible Bosses’ Jason Bateman and Bridesmaids’ Melissa McCarthy lead the cast of Identity Thief, an all-star comedy in which a regular guy is forced to extreme measures to clear his name. With everything to lose after his identity is stolen, he’ll find out how crazed you can get trying to settle a bad credit score.
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 the 2,000 miles to Denver, one easy target will discover just how tough it is to get your name back.
