Identity Thief looks like it could be very entertaining, and to try and get us excited for it March 1st release, a new trailer has been released.
Melissa McCarthy plays Diana, who has unlimited funds to live it up on the outskirts of Miami. 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 (Jason Bateman) who lives halfway across the US. 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. As he attempts to bribe, coax and wrangle her the 2,000 miles to Denver, one easy target will discover just how tough it is to get your name back.
The trailer suggests the film will allow McCarthy to really go wild, while Bateman can play up his trademark normal guy under extraordinary circumstances.
