Melissa McCarthy’s film career got a huge boost due to Bridesmaids, and while she has to spend much of the year making her (abysmal) sitcom Mike & Molly, Variety reports she’s hoping to slip in a small role in the comedy sequel The Hangover Part III.
A deal hasn’t been finalised yet, as scheduling issues need to be sorted out, although it is believed she will sign on in the near future. No details are known about her character. She’ll have to sort things out quickly though, as shooting on the movie started in Los Angeles and Las Vegas last week.
Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, and Justin Bartha are back as The Wolf Pack, with franchise favorites Mike Tyson, Ken Jeong, Mike Epps, and Heather Graham also returning. Todd Phillips is directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with Craig Mazin. It’ll be in cinemas next summer.
