McCarthy, Falcone Team For “Life of the Party”

With “The Boss” opening this weekend and heading towards a $23 million opening, actress Melissa McCarthy and her spouse Ben Falcone are teaming on the comedy feature “Life of the Party” at New Line.

The pair will serve in the same capacities here as they did on “Boss” – both will write the script and produce through their On the Way production company, she will star and he will direct.

Specifics of the plot are under wraps, but the film is said to have a tone similar to “Back to School”. Filming is slated to begin in August.
