Gilmore Girls alum Melissa McCarthy who was undoubtedly one of the breakout stars of this year's Bridesmaids is set to reunite with producer Judd Apatow for the as yet untitled follow up to runaway hit Knocked Up.
The film has just began shooting and according to The Hollywood Reporter she’ll play a mother whose son attends the same school that Pete and Debbie’s kids go to.
The kids will once again be played by Maude and Iris, the real life children of Leslie Mann and Judd Apatow in a film that will focus on Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann’s Pete and Debbie characters from the film, and will chronicle more issues with their marriage.
Rounding out the cast are Chris O’Dowd, Megan Fox, Lena Dunham and Hollywood icon Albert Brooks who has signed on to play Rudd's dad.
