Deadline is reporting that actress Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids, TV’s Mike and Molly, The Heat) has joined the voice cast of DreamWorks Animation’s B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations. McCarthy joins Seth Rogen (Monsters vs. Aliens, Knocked Up, This Is the End) in this CG animated comedy that is being directed by Anthony Leondis (Igor).
DreamWorks Animation has released the following description of the film:
“B.O.O. (Bureau of Otherworldly Operations) is the superclassified agency you’ve never heard of and certainly never seen. Dedicated to protecting humans from evil hauntings, the agents of B.O.O. have a secret weapon: They are ghosts themselves! When newbie agents Jackson Moss (Rogen) and his odd-ball partner Watts (McCarthy) uncover a plot to destroy B.O.O. by the agency’s Most Wanted Haunter, they must use every trick in their arsenal to defeat his powerful ghost army and save Earth from a ghostly fate.”
B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations is scheduled to open in the U.S. theaters on June 5, 2015.
