Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone making Super-Intelligence
The Hollywood Reporter says that Melissa McCarthy will star in New Line’s upcoming action comedy titled Super-Intelligence. New Line has McCarthy’s husband Ben Falcone attached to direct the action comedy.
This project will mark the fourth collaboration between the duo. They have previously teamed up to work on Tammy, The Boss, and Life of the Party. Life of the Party will be released on May 11, 2018.
The screenplay was written by Steve Mallory, who also wrote The Boss. Production on the film starts in July this year.
McCarthy has a few projects to tackle prior to production on this film. She is attached to film New Line’s upcoming film The Kitchen, which is based off of the comic series of the same name. She will be joining Tiffany Haddish and Elisabeth Moss.
In Super-Intelligence, McCarthy will play Carol Peters, a former corporate executive whose earnest yet unfulfilled life is turned upside down when she is selected for observation by the world’s first super-intelligence – an artificial intelligence that may or may not take over the world.
