Bateman, Lane Set To Join “Felt”

Jason Bateman and Diane Lane will join Liam Neeson in true-life spy thriller “Felt” at MadRiver Pictures and Scott Free Productions. Peter Landesman will direct from his own script and produce with shooting set for March.

Neeson plays special agent Mark Felt, the man who later revealed himself as ‘Deep Throat’ – the key source during the Washington Post’s investigation into the Watergate break-in by White House employees.

Bateman will play FBI Agent and Felt lieutenant Charlie Bates, who discovers that Felt is leaking classified information on the Watergate investigation and is conflicted about whether to destroy his mentor or protect him.
