It was announced last week that Melissa McCarthy (pictured below, from Mike & Molly, Bridesmaids) was cast the voice of Watts in DreamWorks Animation’s forthcoming feature B.O.O. (Bureau of Otherworldly Operations). But we here at Animation Scoop have nabbed an exclusive first look at the film’s logo (above).
Based on an original idea by Tony Leondis (Igor), who is also directing, the film is being produced by Maryann Garger (Astro Boy, Flushed Away) and written by Tom Wheeler (Puss in Boots). B.O.O. is scheduled to be released on June 5, 2015.
B.O.O. (Bureau of Otherworldly Operations) is the super classified agency you’ve never heard of and certainly never seen. Dedicated to protecting humans from evil hauntings, the agents of B.O.O. have a secret weapon: they are ghosts themselves! When newbie agents Jackson Moss (Seth Rogen) and his odd-ball partner Watts (Melissa McCarthy) uncover a plot to destroy B.O.O. by the agency’s Most Wanted Haunter, they must use every trick in their arsenal to defeat his powerful ghost army and save Earth from a ghostly fate.
