Melisaa McCarthy just hit theaters with her new comedy The Boss, and is already eyeing her next film again with husband Ben Falcone. Coincidentally enough, she was just named Comic Genius at this year’s MTV Awards so why wouldn’t she have another comedy on the way. Details of this particular film has yet to be announced but The Hollywood Reporter went on to share the news.
New Line has picked up Life of the Party, which McCarthy will star in and Falcone will direct. But wait, there’s more: The duo also wrote the script and, on top of that, will produce the project, which ideally would shoot in August. Plot details are being kept under wraps, but the film has been described as being akin in tone to the Rodney Dangerfield hit Back to School and pitched as a broad comedy playing on McCarthy’s strengths.
