Jason Bateman had quite a mainstream summer, so a return to quieter indie projects seems fairly appropriate. Variety reports that Bateman is in final negotiations to star opposite Olivia Wilde in 'The Longest Week' and Alexander Skarsgard in 'Disconnect.' ("You've gotta lock that down," said Michael Bluth about the negotiations.) 'Week' would find Bateman playing a spoiled rich heir who loses his home and inheritance within the span of one week, while also finding love; 'Disconnect' is an ensemble drama about how the Internet affects people's lives. Not that the beloved star is eschewing big comedies now: Bateman's attached to 'I.D. Theft' with Melissa McCarthy and 'The In-Sane Laws' with Vince Vaughn. [Variety]
