Universal sets ‘Identity Thief’ date

Seth Gordon crime comedy to go out May 10, 2013

Universal has set a May 10, 2013, release date for Seth Gordon’s crime comedy “Identity Thief.”

Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy are attached to star, with Scott Stuber to produce through his Stuber Pictures banner, alongside Bateman and Peter Morgan for DumbDumb. Pic revolves around a man whose identity is stolen by a woman.

Universal used the same weekend last year for the opening of “Bridesmaids,” for which McCarthy received an Oscar nom.

“Identity Theft” will open against Warner Bros. sci-fier “Pacific Rim,” directed by Guillermo del Toro. Latter is the tale of an alien attack threatening Earth’s existence.
