Yes, you read that right. Jason Bateman (Arrested Development, Horrible Bosses) is in this new thriller which also stars Hope Davis, Frank Grillo, Michael Nyqvist, Paula Patton, Andrea Riseborough, Alexander Skarsgard and Max Thieriot.
It looks like the Henry Alex Rubin tells a number of different stories that interconnect.
The story follows a hard-working lawyer, who attached to his cell phone, can’t find the time to communicate with his family. A couple is drawn into a dangerous situation when their secrets are exposed online. A widowed ex-cop struggles to raise a mischievous son who cyber-bullies a classmate. An ambitious journalist sees a career-making story in a teen that performs on an adult-only site. They are strangers, neighbors and colleagues and their stories collide in this riveting dramatic thriller about ordinary people struggling to connect in today’s wired world.
I am not sure how the perils of the Internet will translate that well onto film. There are some good actors involved so we will have to wait and see.
