Theron & Bateman in Tonight, He Comes

Production Weekly says that Charlize Theron and Jason Bateman will star opposite Will Smith in director Peter Berg’s superhero drama, Tonight, He Comes, from Columbia Pictures.

Smith plays a down-and-out superhero who has a bad image with the public because he causes a lot of collateral damage while he solves crime, and he’s an alcoholic. Bateman plays a corporate public relations consultant, who after being rescued by Smith tries to repay him by revamping his image. But while Bateman is trying to repair Smith’s reputation the superhero is secretly romancing Bateman’s alluring wife played by Theron.

Shooting will start early May in Los Angeles. The studio is targeting a July 2, 2008 release.
