Melissa McCarthy heads back to college in 'Life of the Party'

Audiences are in for a wild ride as Melissa McCarthy goes back to college to get her degree in the trailer for "Life of the Party". Falcone also directed McCarthy in 2014's Tammy and 2016's The Boss. Also featuring Julie Bowen and Debby Ryan, the movie is bound to be yet another hilarious adventure for McCarthy. Chris Henchy also produced the film, with Toby Emmerich, Richard Brener, Michael Disco and David Siegel serving as executive producers.

Life of the Party seems to be sticking fairly close to the same formula McCarthy and Falcone used in their previous ventures together. Fil Eisler (How to Be Single, Empire) was in charge of the film's music.

The Spy and The Heat star went all of 2017 without starring in a movie, after cranking out one or two a year pretty steadily since her breakthrough role in Bridesmaids back in 2011, but she has a new one, titled Life of the Party, out for Mother's Day.

Deanna's return to college presents McCarthy with plenty of opportunities to embarrass her daughter, but as the trailer demonstrates, that's not really the goal of the movie - at least not the entire film. Plunging headlong into the campus experience, the increasingly outspoken Deanna-now going by Dee Rock-embraces freedom, fun and frat boys on her own terms, finding her true self in a senior year no one ever expected.

McCarthy has been busy as of late.
