How did I not know that Melissa McCarthy has a new movie coming out? When in the world did she find the time to shoot it?! Well, Melissa has a new movie coming out called ‘The Boss.’ Kristen Bell co-stars in the film with her. Two of my favorite actresses: could it get any better?! Check out the trailer after the break.
Here’s the description of ‘The Boss’:
Academy Award®-nominated star Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids, The Heat, Tammy) headlines The Boss as a titan of industry who is sent to prison after she’s caught for insider trading. When she emerges ready to rebrand herself as America’s latest sweetheart, not everyone she screwed over is so quick to forgive and forget.
How does Melissa’s character decide to “rebrand” herself? By forming a Girl Scout troop and teaching them “real business skills. You can imagine how that goes ;). Melissa, husband (and director of ‘The Boss’) Ben Falcone, and Steve Mallory wrote the script. It looks like they took some inspiration from Martha Stewart, but we all know that Martha didn’t lose everything when she was convicted of insider trading.
The worst news about ‘The Boss’ is that it isn’t scheduled to hit theaters until April 8, 2016. I’m ready to watch it NOW. Melissa and Kristen look like they do a great job playing off each other.
Warning: there are a few swear words and some “adult” topics discussed in the trailer. It’s not enough for it to be labeled a Red Band trailer, but if you’re at work or have little ones peering over your shoulder, then you might not want to play this ;).
