With his crime comedy Identity Thief opening this weekend, Jason Bateman is already setting up his next film.  Bateman will co-produce Game Night, an ensemble comedy acquired by New Line Cinema from a pitch by Mark Perez (Accepted).  The premise centers around a group of couples who have regular get togethers to play games, but one deadly night turns into a murder mystery.  Deadline reports that the dark comedy is said to be in the vein of Horrible Bosses.  Bateman’s Aggregate Films, responsible for Identity Thief and Bateman’s directorial debut Bad Words, will co-produce the picture.

For news on (Doctor) Who is joining Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut, How to Catch a Monster, hit the jump. 

Variety reports that Matt Smith of Doctor Who fame will make his U.S. acting debut as the male lead in How to Catch a Monster.  The picture recently added Eva Mendes (Sin City) and also stars Christina Hendricks, Ben Mendelsohn and Rob Zabrecky.  Set against the surreal backdrop of a vanishing town, a single mother of two (Hendricks) is swept up into a dark fantasy underworld while her teenage son discovers a hidden road into an underwater city.  Mendes will play Cat, a prominent figure in the Big Bad Wolf Club while Zabrecky stars as a cab driver.  How to Catch a Monster will begin shooting in May.
