Morris Chestnut Joins T.I., Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman for Identity Thief

The cast for Universal Pictures' caper comedy Identity Thief (can you guess what it's about?) is getting more interesting. Morris Chestnut just signed on for the film, about a woman (Melissa McCarthy) who steals a rich guy's (Jason Bateman) identity. Havoc ensues, naturally.


Chestnut and T.I. are on the right side of the law, as a Boston cop and bounty hunter, respectively, hired to chase down the culprits.

McCarthy is a hot property after earning an Oscar nod for her breakout role in Bridesmaids last year, while Bateman is...just Bateman. King of quirky-indie-comedies. The film will be directed by Horrible Bosses helmer Seth Gordon .

Look for an early spring 2013 release.
