Amy Schumer to Co-Write, Star in Mother-Daughter Comedy for Fox

5 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

If you haven’t heard of her already, Amy Schumer is about to break out in a big way this summer with the Universal film Trainwreck. She wrote the comedy based on plenty of personal experience, then was tapped to lead the movie onscreen with Judd Apatow directing. The film looks hilarious, and the most recent season of her Comedy Central series Inside Amy Schumer has been a string of genius sketch after genius sketch. So it comes with a certain degree of excitement that THR reports Schumer will be co-writing and starring in an untitled mother-daughter comedy for Fox. She will pen the screenplay with her sister, Kim Caramele, who serves as an associate producer and writer on Inside Amy Schumer. Paul Feig, the director behind female-driven comedies like Bridesmaids and The Heat, will produce Schumer’s new feature. The plot is being kept under wraps, but the film »

Movie Review – Spy (2015)

8 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Spy, 2015.

Written and Directed by Paul Feig.

Starring Melissa McCarthy, Rose Byrne, Jason Statham, Jude Law, Bobby Cannavale and Morena Baccarin.

Synopsis:

A desk-bound CIA analyst volunteers to go undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent diabolical global disaster.

Martin Scorsese has Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert DeNiro, Tim Burton has Johnny Depp, and Paul Feig has Melissa McCarthy. Some actor/director combinations fit like a glove, and for the third straight outing (Bridesmaids and The Heat) we have another success with Spy.

Unexpectedly, there is also an admirable amount of unexplored range channeled from Melissa McCarthy, not portraying the sassy, loudmouthed, obscene character right out of the gate that we have grown accustomed to. Instead, she plays Susan Cooper, a CIA field operative assistant of 10 years with low self-esteem that decides to jump into the heart of the action when her good friend Bradley Fine »

Reese Witherspoon to Play Tinker Bell in Live-Action Disney Flick

12 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Disney's live-action trend continues with the announcement of its newest take on a classic character: Reese Witherspoon is set to play Tinker Bell in an origin story flick.

The Hollywood Reporter writes that the Oscar-winning actress has been tapped to headline "Tink," which will delve into the backstory of the "Peter Pan" character. Though there are no plot details yet, THR says that the movie "will play with the idea and the timeline of the well-known Peter Pan narrative." And like 2014 hit "Maleficent," "Tink" aims to tell "'the story you don't know,' and will offer a new perspective on the character," per THR.

Witherspoon certainly has the petite, pixie-ish looks to pull of the character, and she's been splitting her time pretty evenly these days between comedy and drama projects. Depending on which director she takes Tinker Bell, the flick could wind up being some combination of those two genres. »

Spy: Jason Statham Steals the Show in 5 New Clips

20 May 2015 6:29 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

20th Century Fox has released five new Spy clips for Paul Feig's (Bridesmaids, The Heat) upcoming espionage comedy. The film stars Melissa McCarthy as a desk-bound CIA agent who must go into the field for the first time when the identity of the agency's premiere assets are compromised. Jason Statham, who co-stars in the film as rugged top agent Rick Ford, is a consistently underrated performer who's long been relegated to shoot 'em up action films. Don't get me wrong, I love those movies, but I'm excited to see Statham finally get a chance to flex his comedy skills. If these clips are any indication, he's going to kill it. While he's definitely still playing to type as the brawny badass, Statham's bringing a self-awareness and utterly crass delivery to the character. Perri singled Statham out as a one of Spy's highlights in her SXSW review, and early »

Melissa McCarthy Reveals Her Daughter's Hilarious Obsession With Robbers

20 May 2015 6:31 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Melissa McCarthy stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday, where she revealed a hilarious fact about her youngest daughter, Georgette: she's slightly obsessed with protecting the family home from robbers. "She talks about robbers a lot," Melissa said with a jokingly worrisome tone. "We'll be having dinner or breakfast and out of nowhere she'll say, 'If a robber ever gets in here, I will take care of him.' And this isn't something we discuss like, 'Now for safety, if we're ever robbed . . .' I don't say these horrible things. She will bring up stuff with other people and it's always like, 'If somebody gets in here, here's what I'm gonna do.' And it's always a horrible plot with violence. I don't know what her former life was but it was dicey." Watch Melissa tell the funny story above, then check out the trailer for her new movie Spy, »

Melissa McCarthy Shows Off Stunning Weight Loss At Hollywood Walk Of Fame Ceremony!

20 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Melissa McCarthy is looking good!    The "Bridesmaids" star received a big honor on Tuesday when she was given a star on The Hollywood Walk Of Fame -- and the actress has never looked better. The 44-year-old looked noticeably thinner at the ceremony, sporting a purple printed kimono style dress that accentuated her shrinking waist.  She paired her ensemble with nude sandals and loose curls.   In June 2014, the mother-of-two looked noticeably different in a black leather dress at the premiere of her movie, "Tammy".   The "Mike and Molly" star is estimated to have lost almost 50 pounds but has stayed mum about her new look. Melissa has always been vocal about being confident at any size, especially when it comes to setting an example for her two daughters, Vivian and Georgette.   "I've never felt like I needed to change," she previously revealed to People. "I've always thought, 'If you want somebody different, »

20 May 2015 5:15 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Melissa McCarthy believes in teachable moments. In Entertainment Weekly's May 22, 2015 issue, the actress recalled coming face-to-face with a film critic during the 2014 Toronto Film Festival after he had recently trashed her appearance in the film Tammy. Though she was there to promote St. Vincent, McCarthy called the critic out for his sexiest commentary. The Spy star elaborated on her experience on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Wednesday. "I met him at the Toronto Film Festival, and he actually said, 'I'm the one that wrote this.' He said, basically, I'm only a good actress when I look attractive and that my husband [Ben Falcone] shouldn't be allowed to direct me because he let me look »

Melissa McCarthy doesn't mind if you walk all over her—all over her new star, that is. The Spy funny lady received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame earlier today in front of a crowd that included her hubby Ben Falcone, Ellen DeGeneres and director Paul Feig.

Also in attendance were the Illinois native's mom, sister and a slew of her film and television co-stars. Her dad, however, wasn't able to make it—for a hilarious reason. "He is deweeding the lake," McCarthy explained. "It was his turn at the club to take care of »

Odious Clunker ‘Jupiter Ascending’ Gets Honest Trailer Treatment

19 May 2015 2:45 PM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

“You Just Found Out Aliens Exist, Wake Up!”There aren’t many movies worth discussing these days. Except for Mad Max: The Fury and Carol, it’s pretty much Rebel Wilson-Melissa McCarthy Xxl comedies that we’ll sit out. Let’s discuss the hilarity of the new Honest Trailers take on the odious clunker known as “Jupiter Ascending.”  It’s completely mental. Not since “Bad Grandpa” has a movie demanded copious amounts of weed as a recommended strategy to sit through it. Normally we adore Mila Kunis but she is so very bad in this film, as is Eddie Redmayne. This is no “Dune”or “Matrix”  but […] »

Walk of Fame Honoree McCarthy Has Her Roots In the Groundlings

19 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Comedian Jim Rash remembers very well Melissa McCarthy’s pitches at the Groundlings.

“She would go, ‘And this point is where I would love somehow to be able to fly over the audience,’ ” Rash says.

It’s just one of the impossible feats Melissa McCarthy proposed during her days working with Rash as a member of the Los Angeles-based improvisational sketch comedy troupe.

Since it was founded over 40 years ago, the Groundlings has launched many comedy stars, including McCarthy, Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig. The company doesn’t have permanent creative leaders; instead it runs as a democracy. Aspiring comedians start at level one and work their way up until they are selected by the current cast to join the top performing company, capped at 30 members.

Rash met McCarthy about 15 years ago, when she was in the Sunday company (one level below the top), and he was her director. He »

When it comes to comedy, Melissa McCarthy admits she was “hit with a lucky stick.”

Growing up in Illinois, the actress says she was always surrounded by funny people, particularly women. “And a bunch of funny men who think women are really funny – I didn’t grow up with a sense that people thought any differently,” she says.

The actress and comedienne has gone on to become one of comedy’s brightest stars and will be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on May 19.
