Oscar-nominated Melissa McCarthy, the protagonist of Bridesmaids, The Heat, Tammy, is now the star of a comedy about a very wealthy businessman who is sent to prison after being caught making use of illegal stock market information. When he comes out of the misty, he tries to reinvent himself as the most sympathetic person in the world, but those who have been deceived are not willing to forgive and forget.
Next to McCarthy, we’ll see Kristen Bell, Peter Dinklage and Kathy Bates. Directed by Ben Falcone (Tammy), the comedy is based on the character created by McCarthy, and the script is written by Ben Falcone and Steve Mallory. Producers are McCarthy and Falcone, through their company, On the Day Productions, and Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Chris Henchy, through their company, Gary Sanchez Productions.
