Kristen Bell is always a good addition to a cast (it’s surprising she doesn’t get more roles in major movies), and the people behind Michelle Darnell seem to have realised that, as Variety reports that she’s joined Melissa McCarthy and Peter Dinklage in Michelle Darnell.
McCarthy also co-wrote she script alongside Steve Mallory and her hubby Ben Falcone (who will also direct), which ‘follows 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.’
Bell has signed on to play Darnell’s former assistant, who plays a major role in the tale. Dinklage is the main antagonist.
The film will shoot this summer for an release April 2016.
