Variety is reporting that Rachel and Jason Bateman will star in “Game Night“. THR is reporting Rachel is “in negotiations to star opposite Jason Bateman”, while EW also confirms the news by reporting that Rachel and Bateman will “headline the New Line comedy”. Rachel previously worked with Bateman on “State Of Play“. Daley confirmed the news on his official twitter account by writing, “very excited to announce this!”
Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams will star in the New Line Comedy “Game Night.”
“Vacation’s” directing duo of Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley will helm the movie with Bateman producing alongside James Garavente for Aggregate Films. John Davis and John Fox will produce for Davis Entertainment. Goldstein and Daley also wrote the latest draft of the screenplay.
“Game Night,” which has been in development at New Line since 2013 when Mark Perez wrote the original script, follows several couples who gather for their regularly-planned game night when something goes terribly wrong.
Although Bateman has only recently formally signed on to star, Aggregate has been producing this project since the pitch stage and brought on Goldstein & Daley. They were also instrumental in getting Rachel McAdams on board.
