Melissa McCarthy To Produce And Star In Three New Comedies
This weekend Melissa McCarthy will be arriving in theaters courtesy of the new comedy Identity Thief. The movie is her first starring film role since she became a breakout star in Paul Feig's Bridesmaids, earning a Best Supporting Actress Academy Award for her performance. She has landed a number of new projects since then and today she has added three (yes, three) new movies to her slate.

Sandra Bullock, Melissa McCarthy Continue To Crush In The Heat Trailer
Melissa McCarthy has two high-profile comedies rolling into theaters over the next few weeks. Yet, while her Identity Thief (with Jason Bateman) will reach area screens first, we’re kind of looking past that to the March release of The Heat thanks to hilarious new international trailers like this one, which recently landed online.

New Identity Thief Trailer Lets Melissa McCarthy Cut Loose
Aside from a tiny role in Judd Apatow's This is 40, Melissa McCarthy hasn't actually been much of a presence at the movies this year. But her performance as Megan in last year's Bridesmaids, and the Oscar nomination that came with it, still looms large enough in pop culture that it feels like McCarthy has been everywhere

Bill Burr Joins Bullock And McCarthy In Paul Feig's Buddy Cop Film
Paul Feig's Bridesmaids was a fantastic demonstration of just how funny women can be, and perhaps we'll see a similar demonstration when he directs Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy in the yet-to-be-titled buddy cop film written by Katie Dippold. While the movie has already begun filming in Boston, it's apparently still adding to its cast.

Tony Hale Joins Melissa McCarthy And Sandra Bullock's Buddy Cop Comedy
With a foundation that includes a hot director, a rising screenwriter, and two A-list comediennes, The Heat—or whatever it will eventually be called—is sure to attract a stellar array of supporting players, and chief among them is the always awesome Tony Hale

Sandra Bullock And Melissa McCarthy Teaming Up For Paul Feig Directed Buddy Cop Movie
Almost twenty years ago, Sandra Bullock brought an amusing kind of charm to her role as law enforcer Lenina Huxley in the futuristic action movie Demolition Man. From what's being reported, it looks like the Blind Side star will be back in a badge and teaming up with fellow funny lady Melissa McCarthy for a comedy written by Katie Dippold and directed by Bridesmaids' Paul Feig.

Chris Rock Wants Melissa McCarthy For The Film He's Writing
Chris Rock had one of the most surprising and charming acting turns at this year's Sundance Film Festival, playing the beleaguered husband of Julie Delpy's character in 2 Days In New York, an energetic comedy she also directed

Melissa McCarthy, Jason Bateman Paired In Seth Gordon's Comedy Identity Theft
Bateman will play a man whose identity is stripped, and while the script originally was supposed to pair him with another male comedian (as the thief), the premise was shifted once the Arrested Development star saw McCarthy in Bridesmaids. That’s a big win for Theft, as multiple projects reportedly have been lobbying for McCarthy’s talents as she continues to work her way through the awards race and eyes a potential Best Supporting Actress nomination.

Judd Apatow Doesn't Want Bridesmaids 2 To Be Jaws 3D
The proposed sequel has grabbed plenty of headlines recently. First came reports that Kristen Wiig and Bridesmaids' co-writer Annie Mumolo weren't interested in making Bridesmaids 2, which led to rumors that Universal would seek to produce a cash cow sequel without them. Speculation soon surfaced that the flick's breakthrough comedienne Melissa McCarthy would shoulder the Wiig-less spin-off...

Beth McCarthy Set To Direct Melissa McCarthy's Comedy Tammy
While a Bridesmaids sequel without Kristen Wiig could be out of the question for Melissa McCarthy, we will be seeing the Mike & Molly star back on the big screen eventually. In addition to being credited for a part in the upcoming Judd Apatow comedy This is 40, McCarthy also has Tammy in the works. The comedy, which McCarthy co-wrote and will executive-produce along with her husband/Bridesmaids-love interest Ben Falcone, now has a director.

Melissa McCarthy Won't Make Bridesmaids Sequel Without Kristen Wiig
She went on to say she hasn't been contacted with any specifics on the project, but would only consider reprising the role of Megan if its original cast and writers returned, saying, "I will show up wherever those ladies are." Without McCarthy on board (and by extension Wiig and Mumolo) it's hard to imagine where Bridesmaids 2 could go storywise.

Tate Taylor Taps Out Of Melissa McCarthy's Tammy
The same goes for Taylor, who might be wise to play the waiting game before selecting his next project. Depending on whom you trust, Taylor’s The Help could be a major player in this year’s still-developing Oscar race. And a select few Oscar trackers are saying the film’s pull could drag Taylor into the Best Director race as a result. If that’s the case, he suddenly could have his pick of a series of prestige projects, so there’s no need to jump on a film just yet.

The Help Director Tate Taylor Could Helm Melissa McCarthy's Tammy
I actually really like the idea of breakout stars working together. They all have something to prove with their next efforts, so why not work together to produce the best work that they can? Taylor proved that he can handle strong lead female characters with The Help, so Tammy seems right up his alley.
