Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams Team for Game Night

7 January 2017 10:55 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Jason Bateman is coming off his starring turn in the holiday laugh-fest Christmas Office Party. And he's wasting no time jumping right into another high-concept comedy with Game Night. The movie will team him with Rachel McAdams.

The story revolves around a group of couples whose regularly planned game night goes murderously off the rails. Jason Bateman is officially signed to take the lead, with McAdams currently said to be in negotiations. The screenplay arrives from the power duo of Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley. They will be directing the movie as well.

Jason Bateman will produce Game Night through his Aggregate Films banner alongside partner James Garavente. John Davis and John Fox are producing the movie for Davis Entertainment. It is stated by The Hollywood Reporter that while Bateman only recently signed on, Aggregate has been attached to the project from the get-go, agreeing to produce since the pitch was made. »

Rachel McAdams and Jason Bateman to star in New Line comedy Game Night

4 January 2017 11:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Rachel McAdams (Doctor Strange) is in negotiations to join Jason Bateman (Zootopia) in New Line Cinema’s upcoming Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley-directed comedy Game Night.

The project, which is being produced by Bateman and James Garavente through their production company Aggregate Films and John Davis and John Fox through Davis Entertainment, centers around “a group of couples who gather for their regularly planned game night when something goes murderously wrong.”

Bateman has been attached to the project for a few months now as a producer, but only recently signed on to star.

The film sounds like it could be a great ensemble comedy, and it surely will line up a talented cast in the weeks to come. Bateman is coming off of Office Christmas Party, which was largely panned by critics despite its adept ensemble, so hopefully Game Night delivers where that movie wasn’t able to. »

Rachel McAdams And Jason Bateman To Participate In Game Night For New Line

4 January 2017 9:31 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Doctor Strange star Rachel McAdams has entered negotiations to participate in Game Night, a New Line comedy to be helmed by Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley.

Nothing is concrete just yet, but we understand that McAdams is poised to join Jason Bateman for a light-hearted romp involving a group of like-minded couples who regularly earmark one night on the calendar for Game Night. Drinks, laughs, and general revelry ensue, but their cherished tradition takes a turn for the worse when something goes murderously wrong. No further details were given regarding the story or McAdams and Bateman’s respective roles in it, but we assume the pair are set to play one couple caught up in the domestic chaos.

Dana Fox and Mark Perez hatched the original screenplay, before Goldstein and Daley, who enjoyed success through 2015’s Vacation reboot, produced a final draft for Game Night. It’s been teetering »
