Melissa McCarthy is reportedly about to receive an offer for a role across from Bill Murray in St. Vincent De Van Nuys. Murray stars as a "cantankerous train wreck" who mentors the 12-year-old son of McCarthy's single mom character. Deadline says it's "a role that all the top comic actresses chased," which sounds like anything with Bill Murray. The film will be the feature debut of Ted Melfi, whose script got a nod from the Black List. It's been likened to As Good As It Gets and Silver Linings Playbook "for the way it mixes comedy and human pathos." »
