Ben Falcone Didn’t Have To Force Jason Bateman To Join ‘Thunder’

THUNDER FORCE (L-R): BEHIND THE SCENES with DIRECTOR, BEN FALCONE, JASON BATEMAN as THE CRAB. Cr. HOPPER STONE/NETFLIX © 2021.

In 2013, Jason Bateman co-starred with Melissa McCarthy in the movie Identity Thief, which also had McCarthy’s husband, Ben Falcone, in its cast. Ever since, the three of them have maintained a strong friendship, so when Falcone approached Bateman with a new project he’d written and would direct for McCarthy — the superhero comedy Thunder Force — he didn’t have to twist Bateman’s arm to get him to accept, because Bateman says he knew he’d have a great time making the movie.
