Susan Cooper

mccarthy

So far Melissa McCarthy has seen her biggest big screen successes, both critically and commercially, come from her collaborations with director Paul Feig. It was his use of her in Bridesmaids that really broke her as a comedic actress, and it was her recent pairing with Sandra Bullock in The Heat that gave her a starring role that didn’t get torn apart by critics. The partnership has worked out pretty well for Feig too. He used to be known primarily as a television director, but now that his latest two features have both proven to be profitable, he finds himself settling into what’s likely to be a more lucrative gig as the director of big studio comedies. So it just makes sense that the two should keep working together. According to a report from The Wrap, their next collaboration is likely to come in the form of a spy comedy called Susan Cooper, which Feig has written the screenplay for and is looking to make his next project as a director. Their sources say that, while nothing is yet official, McCarthy is currently in talks to become the central figure of what the studio hopes will be a franchise-launcher.
