Sibling thesps set for ‘Identity Theft’

Maggie Elizabeth and Mary-Charles Jones board Seth Gordon's U laffer

“Footloose” thesps (and sisters) Maggie Elizabeth Jones and Mary-Charles Jones have been cast as Jason Bateman and Amanda Peet’s daughters in Seth Gordon’s Universal comedy “Identity Theft.”

Bateman stars as a man whose life falls apart after his identity is stolen. When he corners the perpetrator (Melissa McCarthy), he gets a wake-up call he wasn’t expecting.

John Cho, Clark Duke and Kevin Covais are set for supporting roles, and other high-profile cast members are expected to be announced soon, as the pic is skedded for release on May 10, 2013.

Scott Stuber and Pamela Abdy are producing through the former’s U-based Bluegrass Films banner, along with Bateman, while Peter Morgan will exec produce. Craig Mazin (“The Hangover Part II”) rewrote Steve Conrad’s initial draft of the script.

While the Jones siblings previously appeared together in “Footloose,” they’ve also worked on projects separately. Maggie played Matt Damon’s daughter in “We Bought a Zoo” and recently shot the Fox pilot “Ned Fox Is My Manny,” while older sister Mary-Charles played Kevin Spacey’s daughter in “Father of Invention” and appeared on the Disney Channel’s “Hannah Montana.”

Both thesps are represented by Osbrink Talent Agency, Caliber Media, attorney Kevin Yorn and Atlanta-based Pervis Talent.
