Seth Gordon (Four Christmases) has signed on to direct Universal Pictures’ Identity Theft.
Identity Theft centers on a man whose identity is stolen by a woman. Jason Bateman (The Switch) and Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids) are attached to star as the central duo.
The script was written by Steve Conrad, with Craig Mazen responsible for re-writes.
Identity Theft will start shooting later this year.
Gordon’s latest directorial effort, the R-rated comedy Horrible Bosses, impressed critics and audiences alike, grossing an estimated $210M at the worldwide box office.
