As Bridesmaids opens at the box office this weekend, some of its main talent has sold a comedy pitch to Paramount Pictures.

Melissa McCarthy and Annie Mumolo will write the Untitled Melissa McCarthy and Annie Mumolo Comedy for the studio, which is being set up as a starring vehicle for McCarthy.

Both Melissa McCarthy and Annie Mumolo appear in Bridesmaids, with Mumolo having co-written that screenplay with Kristen Wiig. The story of the Untitled Melissa McCarthy and Annie Mumolo Comedy revolves around a supportive wife who decides to help her husband steal the Staley Cup after he is diagnosed with an incurable disease.

There is no set start date for Untitled Melissa McCarthy and Annie Mumolo Comedy, and it is unclear when the project will move towards production.
