Life of the Party (2018)

Hold on to your bowels: a Bridesmaids reunion is happening.

Bridesmaids alums Maya Rudolph and Melissa McCarthy will reunite in Life of the Party, directed by McCarthy’s husband Ben Falcone. Rudolph will play the best friend to McCarthy’s character, her rep confirmed to EW.

The Maya and Marty star joins previously announced cast members Gillian Jacobs (Don’t Think Twice) and Molly Gordon (Animal Kingdom). McCarthy’s role is unknown and plot details remain scarce for the comedy, set to be released May 11, 2018.

Life of the Party, inspired by 1986 Rodney Dangerfield classic Back to School, was written by McCarthy and Falcone, who previously paired up on last spring’s The Boss. Falcone directorial debut was 2014’s Tammy, which also starred McCarthy.

The Hollywood Reporter originally reported the news.
