Identity Thief

(2013)

Unlimited funds have allowed Diana to live it up on the outskirts of Miami, where the queen of retail buys whatever strikes her fancy. There's only one glitch: The ID she's using to finance these sprees reads "Sandy Bigelow Patterson" and it belongs to an accounts rep who lives halfway across the U.S.

With only one week to hunt down the con artist before his world implodes, the real Sandy Bigelow Patterson heads south to confront the woman with an all-access pass to his life. And as he attempts to bribe, coax and wrangle her the 2,000 miles to Denver, one easy target will discover just how tough it is to get your name back.

‘The Bourne Legacy’ and ‘Identity Thief’ Sequels Moving Forward at Universal

‘The Bourne Legacy’ and ‘Identity Thief’ Sequels Moving Forward at Universal

Universal Chairman Adam Fogelson helped push the studio to its highest-grossing year worldwide in 2012, with hits like Ted, Dr. Seuss' the Lorax and Les Miserables pulling in millions of dollars at the box office. But the studio currently lacks a franchise, and is the only studio amongst the heavyweights to not yet have a billion-dollar grossing movie amongst its back catalogue of hits.

Fogelson hopes to change that in the near future, as he plans to move forward on a number of sequels to recent audience favorites. He gave an update on potential franchise starters The Bourne Legacy and Snow White and the Huntsman, and even announced that a sequel to their most recent hit, the comedy Identity Thief with Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy, is on its way. If its not a direct sequel, the two comedic talents will work together again in some capacity. The Chairman also says that an adapation of the hit Broadway musical Wicked is not that far off, even despite Oz: The Great and Powerful's current stealing of that particular spotlight.
