Michelle Darnell is a woman of industry! She's a lady of power! She's in a lot of trouble! Universal Studios has released a first look at Melissa McCarthy in her new comedy The Boss. We have the first poster, several new photos and a trailer teaser that gives us our first look at footage. It's possible that this could be the funniest role of Melissa McCarthy's career!
The first trailer for The Boss, which was originally titled Michelle Darnell, will debut later tonight on Jimmy Kimmel Live! The actress herself will be making an appearance to show off the exciting and sure to be hilarious sneak peek. And there are sure to be a few surprises for anyone brave enough to tune in.
Academy Award-nominated star Melissa McCarthy headlines The Boss. She is a titan of industry who is sent to prison after she's caught for insider trading. When she emerges ready to rebrand herself as America's latest sweetheart, not everyone she screwed over is so quick to forgive and forget. And this is definitely going to be an uphill battle for the fallen superstar.
Melissa McCarthy is joined in The Boss by an all-star cast. Along for the ride are Kristen Bell, Peter Dinklage, Cecily Strong, Annie Mumolo and Kathy Bates. Directed by Ben Falcone, the comedy is based on an original character created by Melissa McCarthy. The script was written by Melissa McCarthy and Falcone alongside their Groundlings collaborator, Steve Mallory.
The film is produced by Ben Falcone and Melissa McCarthy through their On the Day productions and Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Chris Henchy through their Gary Sanchez Productions. This serves as the second collaboration between director and star, who are actually husband and wife. The duo took on the exact same roles for last year's Tammy. Take a look at the trailer teaser, poster and photos. Then be sure to tune in later tonight for the full trailer premiere, only Jimmy Kimmel Live!
