Bateman To “Disconnect,” “Longest Week”

Jason Bateman has signed on for two indie projects – “Disconnect” at Liddell Entertainment and “The Longest Week” at Far Hills Pictures says Variety.

Henry Alex Rubin’s ensemble drama “Disconnect” deals with characters who are affected, and in some cases destroyed, by the Internet and other forms of modern communication. Alexander Skarsgard, Frank Grillo, Colin Ford, Michael Nyqvist, and John Sharian also star.

In ‘Week’, Jason Bateman plays an affluent and aimless young man living in his parent’s prestigious Manhattan hotel. In the span of one week, he finds himself evicted, disinherited and in love. Peter Glanz directs from his own screenplay.

Bateman will shoot both projects back-to-back between October and November.
