Jason Bateman Joins the Cast of ‘Tonight, He Comes’

Jason Bateman is close to a deal to star opposite Will Smith and Charlize Theron in Peter Berg's superhero drama Tonight, He Comes, according to Production Weekly.

The script, originally by Vincent Ngo and rewritten by Vince Gilligan, has long been considered one of the best unproduced scripts in town.

Smith plays a down-and-out superhero who has a bad image with the public because he causes a lot of collateral damage while he solves crime, and he's an alcoholic.

Bateman plays a corporate public relations consultant, who after being rescued buy Smith tries to repay him by revamping his image. But while Bateman is trying to repair Smith's reputation the superhero is secretly romancing Bateman's alluring wife played by Theron.

Shooting will start in early May in Los Angeles.
