This is sure to be one hilarious movie with these two in the film alone. ”Horrible Bosses” star Jason Bateman and ”Bridesmaids” alum Melissa McCarthy have teamed up to star in Universal Pictures’ ”ID Theft” according to Deadline.

Bateman, who is also producing with Scott Stuber, will star as the victim of an identity theft by McCarthy’s character. The article continues by noting that the script was originally going to feature a male character on the criminal end of things, but the script was later rewritten specifically for McCarthy.

Filming will take place while her show ”Mike and Molly” is on hiatus.
