McCarthy will return to the multiplex this May in the CIA comedy Spy and is already scheduled to reappear in theaters in 2016 in Michelle Darnell, a star vehicle co-written by the actress. To be released on April 8 of next year, Michelle Darnell sounds like a great antidote to The Wolf of Wall Street, centered on a former “titan of industry” who attempts to rehab her image after serving a prison sentence for insider trading. But just because she’s served her time doesn’t mean that her victims aren’t still angry.
Michelle Darnell will be directed by McCarthy’s husband Ben Falcone, who will share writing credits with his wife and Steve Mallory.
McCarthy’s next film, Spy, will be written and directed by Bridesmaids helmer Paul Feig. The actress will play an unassuming CIA analyst who goes undercover to prevent a global disaster.
