Jason Bateman has joined the cast of the superhero drama, Tonight, He Comes for Columbia Pictures.

He'll star opposite Will Smith and Charlize Theron; Peter Berg is directing with Akiva Goldsman, Michael Mann, James Lassiter and Smith producing. Variety notes it revolves around a hard-living, middle-aged superhero (Smith) facing an existential crisis and a disillusioned fan base. Bateman plays a public relations exec who revamps the superhero's image after being saved - even as the superhero woos the exec's wife.

Production on Tonight, He Comes is scheduled to begin in May for a July 2, 2008 release.

Hancock was released July 1st, 2008.
