Offering a glimpse of what's to come, Universal Pictures' "Identity Thief" features big screen funny-woman Melissa McCarthy helming the starring role.

In the crime comedy, the 42-year-old actress portrays Diana, who fulfills her need for the finer things in life with the ID of someone named "Sandy Bigelow Patterson" - which belongs to an accounts representative (Jason Bateman) who lives halfway across the United States.

The real Sandy has one week to hunt down the impersonator and heads south to try and bribe, coax, and wrangle her to Denver.

Opening in February 2013, the Seth Gordon directed flick also stars Jon Favreau, Amanda Peet, Tip "T.I." Harris, Genesis Rodriguez, Morris Chestnut, John Cho, Robert Patrick, and Eric Stonestreet.
