Charity site auctioning off a visit to Jason Bateman-Melissa McCarthy movie

Bid early! Bid often!

Bid early! Bid often!

Want to watch Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy film the movie “ID Theft” up close?

A charity auction site is offering a set visit. The bidding now stands at $2,000.

The movie, also starring Amanda Peet, concerns a guy who has his identity stolen by a woman. It has filmed at Perimeter Mall, Midtown, the 191 Building downtown and the Bank of America Plaza downtown (also a site for “The Change-Up,” the 2011 buddy comedy Bateman and Ryan Reynolds filmed here).

The auction fine print notes the following:

“The visit will take place on a single day — date to be determined by the producers and subject to change — between April 23 and July 3, 2012, in the greater Atlanta, Georgia area. Travel arrangements and accommodations are NOT included in the auction and will be the responsibility of the winning bidder. Ground transport, as determined by the producers, directly to and from the set within the greater Atlanta area will be provided. Please be aware that strict rules govern the production. Decisions exercised by the producers, directors and their designates, are final. Cannot be resold or re-auctioned.”

What that probably means is don’t show up with an entourage, don’t think you’re going to spend the day hanging with the stars and don’t plan on snapping a bunch of photos during the filming. They might pose for a photo with you in between takes, but your people and their people need to work it out after you pay up.

The auction benefits The RFK Center for Justice and Human Rights.

Here is the link. Happy bidding!

Damn!!! I misread the teaser. Thought it said, “Win a visit to the set of the new BATMAN film.”

My bad!
