    Amanda Peet Will Commit 'Identity Theft' With Jason Bateman & Melissa McCarthy

    For a while there at the tail end of the '90s, it seemed like Amanda Peet was poised to be the next big thing. And then....well, that didn't exactly happen. Not that she stopped working, but it seems she wisely decided to work with respected talent on films like "Melinda & Melinda,&...

    Melissa McCarthy & Jason Bateman's 'Identity Thief' Steals May 10, 2013 Release Date

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it. With "Bridesmaids" arriving in theaters on May 13th last year and becoming one of the biggest comedies of 2011, and suprisingly, an awards season player, Universal isn't rocking the boat with the next big Melissa McCarthy comedy.

    Joe Carnahan To Direct 'Cross Brothers'; Ralph Fiennes & Bryan Singer Sought For 'Imitation Game' & David Yates Takes 'A Reliable Wife'

    Very occasionally, the trades do something known in the journalism trade as "burying the lede" -- dropping a hint of a separate story in a piece about something else entirely, which can often be passed over at first glance. As it turns out, there's been a couple of examples of thi...

    Seth Gordon Will Commit 'Identity Theft' With Melissa McCarthy & Jason Bateman

    First announced last summer, and expected to be Melissa McCarthy's first post-"Bridesmaids" starring project, not much had been heard about "Identity Theft" since. But it looks like the plans to shoot this during McCarthy's hiatus from the dreadful CBS sitcom "Mike & Molly" are coming together, as a...

    'Horrible Bosses' To Get A Sequel, Hopefully With Jokes This Time

    While everyone likes to trumpet the summer success stories of "The Hangover Part II" and "Bridesmaids," one other R-rated comedy fared quite well also, though it hasn't been mentioned as often. "Horrible Bosses" was also a super-sized smash, with the workplace comed...

    Jason Bateman Has A 'Disconnect' & Joins 'The Longest Week' With Olivia Wilde

    There are probably no two busier people right now in Hollywood than Jason Bateman and Olivia Wilde -- except for maybe Bryan Cranston -- but we like 'em both so no complaints from us, though their choice of upcoming projects does give us pause.

    'Arrested Development' Cast Gets Back Together For The New Yorker Festival

    While it has been five years since Fox pulled the plug and "Arrested Development" went off the air, rumors of a potential movie have been rampant, but Hollywood (and series creator and writer Mitch Hurwitz) has so far been unable to wrangle everybody back together for one more story with the Bluth f...

    Jason Bateman & Melissa McCarthy To Commit 'ID Theft'

    It has been one helluva summer for R-rated comedies with some big successes ("The Hangover Part II," "Bridesmaids," "Horrible Bosses") and some notable misses ("The Change-Up," "30 Minutes Or Less") and Jason Bateman has been on the receiving end of both. He was part of the ensemble who off their employers in 'Bosses' but opposite Ryan Reynolds, the duo couldn't compel audiences to come out to their bawdy body switching comedy. But Bateman is a savvy, smart guy who has certainly been around the industry for a long time, and now ready to move into producing, he has smartly snagged one of the season's biggest breakout stars to co-star with him ...

    Has An 'Arrested Development' Cast Member Accidentally Leaked The 'Meta' Plot Of The Movie?

    There was a while back there when rumors of an "Arrested Development" movie were numerous, but mostly added up to much ado about nothing. Every detail that emerged from the mouths of cast members sounded like wishful thinking -- a lot of talk about the script being written by 'AD' creator Mitchell Hurtwitz, but no discussion about shooting, releasing, directing or any concrete plans for the production of the movie. Hurwitz continued to focus on television for the most part but both "Sit Down, Shut Up" and "Running Wilde" were canceled by Fox, freeing up his time. And while all cast members have gone on to success after the show's three season...
