Melissa McCarthy Joins ‘Happytime Murders’


Variety are reporting that comedy star Melissa McCarthy has signed on to join the Henson Company puppet noir film Happytime Murders, which is scheduled to begin production in August.

In a statement, Melissa said “When a really good script combines puppet strippers, Los Angeles’ underbelly, and comedy, it’s like my fever dream has finally come true”

This is a fantastic casting choice, with Melissa being the equivalent of a human puppet herself.  We can’t wait to see what she brings to the role.  She and her husband Ben Falcone have also signed on to produce alongside director Brian Henson.
