Best known for being absolutely hilarious in front of the camera, Jason Bateman is finally about to make his feature directorial debut in Bad Words, which will be making its world debut at the 38th Toronto International Film Festival this year.
Bateman is not just behind the camera, but takes the leading role as well. And with the announcement that it will premiere at Tiff comes the first image of the actor/director in the lead.
Jason Bateman directs and stars in this raucous comedy about a cranky, foul-mouthed, fortysomething high-school dropout who, through a registration loophole, enters a national children’s spelling bee and ruthlessly sets out to destroy his pint-sized competition.
Bateman is directing from a script written by Andrew Dodge, who also makes his feature debut with the film. »
