Jason Bateman stars in another film about identity theft this spring -- but it’s far from funny.

In the new tech thriller Disconnect, Bateman plays Derek, a family man whose teenage son falls victim to cyber-bullying. The flick also stars Andrea Wiseborough (W.E.), Alexander Skarsgard, Hope Davis and Paula Patton.

Other storylines include a reporter crossing the line with a teenage subject she interviews and a couple who find themselves on the brink of losing everything when their identities are stolen.

“Everything you do, someone out there can see,” Frank Grillo’s character says in a voiceover in the film’s new trailer, released this week.

Bateman has been enjoying a big 2013 so far, with the release of his comedy Identity Thief with Melissa McCarthy. The film is inching closer to the $100 million mark since opening three weeks ago. The Arrested Development star is also gearing up for the highly anticipated fourth season of the popular series, set to hit Netflix this May.

Disconnect, directed by Henry Alex Rubin, opens in theaters Apr. 12.

Check out the trailer for the film, above. Then tell us: do you think people share too much information online these days?
