Melissa McCarthy to Play Novelist and Literary Forger Lee Israel


Melissa McCarthy will star in Fox Searchlight’s adaptation of Lee Israel’s memoir “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” with “The Diary of a Teenage Girl” director Marielle Heller attached to helm.

The dark comedy will begin shooting early next year. Heller will direct from a script by Nicole Holofcener.

The story is too old to be commented.
