Jason Bateman, Goldie Hawn And More May Join Adam Shankman's This Is Where I Leave You
Adam Shankman may have taken a four year break from features between doing Bedtime Stories and Rock of Ages, but that doesn't mean you should expect him to disappear once his new rock musical is released. Shankman's latest isn't due out for another few weeks (on June 15th), but he has already begun assembling a cast for his next project.
Melissa McCarthy, Jason Bateman Paired In Seth Gordon's Comedy Identity Theft
Bateman will play a man whose identity is stripped, and while the script originally was supposed to pair him with another male comedian (as the thief), the premise was shifted once the Arrested Development star saw McCarthy in Bridesmaids. That’s a big win for Theft, as multiple projects reportedly have been lobbying for McCarthy’s talents as she continues to work her way through the awards race and eyes a potential Best Supporting Actress nomination.
Jason Bateman In Talks For The Longest Week And Disconnect
It was a mixed summer for Jason Bateman. Though Horrible Bosses, which was released this past July, was a critical success and made over $200 million at the global box office, his second entry of the season, the R-rated body switching comedy The Change Up, was slammed by critics and couldn't even make its money back internationally (it only made $47 million worldwide on a $52 million budget).
Jason Bateman Rewrites His Next Comedy ID Theft So Melissa McCarthy Can Co-Star
Of all the R-rated comedies that were hits this summer, and all the actors who suddenly seemed like hot properties as a result, it's hard to imagine two people who benefited more than Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy. They each had big hits with Horrible Bosses and Bridesmaids
Interview: The Change Up's Jason Bateman And Ryan Reynolds
Between Freaky Friday, Like Father, Like Son, 17 Again, and all the other body switching comedies that have come out over the years, there has been some question as to whether or not we really need another one. They all really have the exact same plots, so what could The Change Up possibly offer? How about the incredible comedic talents of Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds
Ryan Reynolds Says The Change-Up Is No Dumber Than A Movie About Talking Apes
Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds star in the film and they’ve gotten together to create this extremely strange, but generally hilarious Change-Up promo as a way of convincing you to see it. Reynolds sells his comedy this way in the video: “Body switching is a pretty stupid f*cking idea, but the movie’s funny if they go they’ll laugh their dick off.”
Jason Bateman To Play A Middle-Aged Pot Dealer In We're The Millers
We're The Millers is one of those great sounding movies that has spent far, far too long in development hell. First developed back in 2002, the project had both Steve Buscemi and Will Arnett attached in the lead role at some point, but when it never ended up going anywhere they fell off. Back in May the project was given new life and now the film has lined up its new lead.
Jeffrey Tambor Claims Arrested Development Movie Still Happening
Tambor was promoting his latest film Lucky when he was asked him the inevitable Arrested question. This time, though, Tambor had a positive response, stating that it’s all going straight, everyone's on board, I know they're writing, and maybe next time this year we'll be having this conversation.
Jason Bateman Interview: On Horrible Bosses, Teen Wolf And His Summer Takeover
The key to Horrible Bosses, how it gets away with mining a murder plot for laughs, is the rapport between Bateman, Sudeikis and Day as the scheming idiots who actually think they can get away with it. When I sat down with Bateman on his own, I asked him to talk about the way they developed that rapport.
David Dobkin's King Arthur Reboot Finds Home At Warner Bros.
Warner Bros. reportedly is going back to the drawing board on the King Arthur legend for a potential tentpole picture. But it’s the studio’s choice in director that sets this story of yet another remake apart from the pack. Variety says WB wants David Dobkin, of Wedding Crashers
Jason Bateman May Star With Vince Vaughn In The Insane Laws
It would seem that Jason Bateman and Vince Vaughn are pretty close pals. In the last seven years the two appeared in four films together, including Dodgeball, The Break Up, Couples Retreat and Starsky & Hutch., but the strange thing is that while they have shared scenes and dialogue, they've never done a film where they play the central two characters. That's about to change.
First Horrible Bosses Clip: Stakeouts Are Actually Really Boring
Everything I'm hearing suggests that Horrible Bosses could be the breakout R-rated comedy hit of the summer, basically what The Hangover was before it morphed into a monstrous sequel. The movie features Jennifer Aniston, Colin Farrell and Kevin Spacey
The Change-Up Set Visit Interview: Ryan Reynolds And Jason Bateman
Below you can see our on-set roundtable conversation with Bateman and Reynolds, in which the obvious rapport between the two longtime friends made both for a great interview and a good sign of the comedic chemistry we can look forward to in The Change-Up
Set Visit Report: Ryan Reynolds And Jason Bateman Get Raunchy In The Change-Up
We watched director David Dobkin take Ryan Reynolds through dozens of different versions of the short scene, in which the little girl asks "Uncle Mitch" to attend her dance recital and he responds with everything from "Only if it's exotic dance" to "Absolutely not. Now go upstairs and do something with your hair"
Green Band Trailer For The Change Up Introduces New Footage
Prepare for a lot of Arrested Development stories this summer as it looks like Jason Bateman is going to be talking to a lot of press this summer. Just a little while ago we posted the first trailer for Horrible Bosses, the film in which Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudekis decide to kill each others' bosses.
