Bridesmaids Star, Co-Writer Sells Stanley Cup Heist Comedy to Paramount

This has potential to it. I saw “Bridesmaids” over the weekend, and this woman stole the film entirely. Yet another hockey-themed picture gets sold. Via Deadline:

Mike & Molly star Melissa McCarthy and Annie Mumalo have sold to Paramount Pictures an untitled pitch that will be written as a star vehicle for McCarthy. McCarthy and Mumalo star in the Judd Apatow-produced Bridesmaids, which Mumalo wrote with Kristen Wiig. Lorne Michaels and John Goldwyn produce. The laffer was hatched by McCarthy’s husband, Ben Falcone (also in Bridesmaids). The premise: When your husband is ill and his doctors are out of ideas, piling in the minivan with your pals to steal the Stanley Cup is one way to go. Falcone, Mumalo and McCarthy all came from the Groundlings comedy troupe. McCarthy is repped by CAA and The Schiff Co.

    Bwahahaha, any other Canadians getting flashbacks to a certain Roy MacGregor young adult novel?

    This has already been done. The Bud Ice penguins stole the Stanley Cup around 10 years ago and it hasn’t been seen since. They have had to use replicas ever since.

    Why no game tonight? NHL blows it again. There’s no nba playoffs tonight. The NHL could have had center stage.
