Identity Thief is the hilarious new comedy, from director Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) and screenwriter Craig Mazin (The Hangover II), that follows what happens to a regular guy (played by Jason Bateman) when he is forced to extreme measures to clear his name after a woman (played by Melissa McCarthy) who loves to live it up steals his identity and ruins his life.

At the press day for the film, Collider spoke to Craig Mazin about making the film, finding the right tone, and the importance of keeping the heart in the story.  While we will run that portion of the interview closer to the film’s February 8th theatrical release date, we did want to share what he had to say about the experience of being a part of the highly successful The Hangover franchise, whether he and Todd Phillips took the criticism of the second film into account when writing The Hangover 3, making films for audiences to enjoy, an the animated feature Turkeys (he reveals Amy Poehler has joined the cast which also featuring the voices of Owen Wilson and Woody Harrelson), which he’s writing and producing.  Check out what he had to say after the jump.
