Melissa McCarthy will unite with fellow graduate of the Judd Apatow school of success Seth Rogen for DreamWorks Animation’s “B.O.O”. The film, from “Igor” director/co-writer Anthony Leondis, is an animated yarn about ghosts hired to hunt other ghosts.
The Hollywood Reporter says :
According to DWA, “B.O.O. (Bureau of Otherworldly Operations) is the superclassified agency you’ve never heard of and certainly never seen. Dedicated to protecting humans from evil hauntings, the agents of B.O.O. have a secret weapon: They are ghosts themselves! When newbie agents Jackson Moss (Rogen) and his odd-ball partner Watts (McCarthy) uncover a plot to destroy B.O.O. by the agency’s Most Wanted Haunter, they must use every trick in their arsenal to defeat his powerful ghost army and save Earth from a ghostly fate.”
The Tom Wheeler-written movie is due June, 2015.
