Mike Judge and Jason Bateman Extract

A devout Catholic engineer, who has his mind set on marrying a nice girl he sees at church, spends a chaste night with a liberated divorcee named Maud. Consequently, the encounter forces him to reassess his own moral standing.

Mike Judge, probably best known for creating ‘Beavis and Butthead’ and ‘King of the Hill’, has signed up to direct the new comedy film ‘Extract’ starring Jason Bateman.

The project, which will also be penned by Judge follows a flower extract plant owner (Bateman) dealing with workplace issues and a stream of bad luck, including his wife’s affair with a gigolo.

Bateman next will be seen in ‘Hancock’ alongside Will Smith and in the Kevin MacDonald-helmed political drama ‘State of Play’.

EXTRAs: According to Judge, the characters of Mr. Tom Anderson (from ‘Beavis and Butt-Head’)  and Hank Hill (from ‘King of the Hill’) are based, in part, on his experiences with his neighbours in Texas.
