For the home entertainment release of ‘The Boss’ starring Melissa McCarthy on Monday 24th of October, we have a never before seen interview with the lady herself.
Academy Award®-nominated Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids, The Heat) takes charge in the outrageous, hilarious new comedy The Boss, arriving on digital download from 10th October, and on Blu-ray and DVD from 24th October courtesy of Universal Pictures (UK). From the creators of Tammy comes the story of America’s richest woman having to fight her way back to the top after being sent to jail, by taking over a girl-scouts brownie business and showing everyone who’s the boss!
Michelle Darnell (Melissa McCarthy) is a titan of industry who is sent to prison for insider trading. After doing her time, Michelle emerges, ready to rebrand herself as America’s latest sweetheart, but she soon finds out that not everyone she has steamrolled is so quick to forgive and forget.
With nowhere to go and no one to scam, Michelle is forced to move in with former assistant Claire (Kristen Bell – Frozen, Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and her young daughter, Rachel. Now at her lowest point, Michelle wastes no time in devising a winner-takes-all plan to rebuild her empire. Can she reclaim her status as America’s most ruthless business woman, or will the love of one family take her down for good?
McCarthy discusses how she created her character Michelle Darnell, what it’s like working with her husband and the film’s director Ben Falcone, and the biggest challenges of making the film.
