Melissa McCarthy and husband Ben Falcone each has worked on movie projects in Georgia. She starred in “Identity Thief” with Jason Bateman while he was in “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” with Jennifer Lopez, Cameron Diaz, Chris Rock and others.
Now the two plan to return for a joint project. “Michelle Darnell,” which Falcone will direct, will star McCarthy as “a titan of industry (who) is sent to prison after she’s caught for insider trading,” says imdb. “When she emerges ready to rebrand herself as America’s latest sweetheart, not everyone she screwed over is so quick to forgive and forget.”
The project has a 2016 release date and is now hiring for crew positions. Send resumes to firstname.lastname@example.org.
