is unstopabble! Straight from Identity Thief
, she jumps in another comedy drama titled St. Vincent De Van Nuys
, where she’ll star next to previously announced Bill Murray
. To be honest, the latest reports say she’s still in talks
to join the project which comes from writer/director Ted Melfi
, but who would say no
to an offer like that?
So, as you already know, Melfi will direct the whole thing from his own script which revolves around a war veteran, played by Murray, who has taken to such hobbies as drinking and gambling in retirement before befriending a 12-year-old neighbor.
Or, if you prefer the official synopsis:
When a twelve year old boy in need of a babysitter moves in next door to a misanthropic aging retiree whose life mainly consists of gambling, hookers, and drinking, the elder becomes an unlikely mentor to the boy.
As for Melissa McCarthy
, she is the choice to play the female lead, described as the single mother who works two shifts at the hospital
. Quite a different role for McCarthy, who will next be seen opposite Sandra Bullock
in The Heat
Shooting starts this July, and as usual – with every new update on St. Vincent De Van Nuys
we’ll be back!
