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

The Playlist:
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.

The studio has dated "Identity Thief" (previously known as "Identity Theft") with nearly the exact same date -- May 10, 2013. Produced and co-starring Jason Bateman, with "Horrible Bosses" helmer Seth Gordon behind the camera, and a script from Steve Conrad ("The Pursuit Of Happyness," "The Weather Man") and Craig Mazin ("The Hangover Part II"), all we know for now is that the movie centers a man whose identity is stolen by a woman. A pretty solid premise, and we can't wait to see where it will go.

Jason Bateman is great but adding Melissa to the mix will almost really make it funny no matter what it is. I love them both. I'll wait and see what the first trailer holds in store for us once it gets that far which is still a long way off.
