What The Change-Up hath wrought: fleeing the safe yet controlling arms of studio films, Jason Bateman will star in indies The Longest Week and Disconnect, both set to shoot this fall. The Longest Week will star Bateman as “a man who lives a life of leisure in his parents’ prestigious Manhattan hotel. In the span of one week, he finds himself evicted, disinherited and in love.” So they’re remaking Arthur again so soon!
Meanwhile, Disconnect will feature Bateman as Colin Ford’s father and one of an “ensemble of characters who are affected – and in some cases destroyed – by the Internet and other forms of modern communication.” Hmmm, has anyone been destroyed by Tumblr yet? It seems like a mathematical guarantee, right?
