A documentary (albeit, a terrific one) about competitive video gaming can take you places. We’ve heard, from Variety, that Seth Gordon (The King of Kong, Horrible Bosses) will follow his developing Identity Theft with The Has-Beens, a comedy freshly set up at New Line Cinemas. Max Werner (Fun Size) scripted the film — and, as it were, has also written a script we basically know nothing about.
I can assume the project will come before WarGames — something that’s not even moving at a comforting pace, so far as we can tell — but that’s purely speculative; when a logline’s being kept secret, there’s nowhere else to go, anyway. In the meantime, we can look forward to Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy in Identity Theft when it hits on May 10th, 2013.
