Leslie Mann

Right now Leslie Mann is enjoying the success of two films on the big screen concurrently. The actress and wife of director Judd Apatow lent her voice to the animated sequel Rio 2, and her romantic comedy The Other Woman has been doing some decent business at the box office since it hit theaters two weeks ago. Now Variety reports she's lined up a new comedy at DreamWorks called Las Madres. Mann will take one of three lead roles in the story of a trio of unemployed friends (seemingly all female by the title which is Spanish for "The Mothers"), who decide to take on a risky chance in order to beat the hard economic times.

The group of friends decide to become bounty hunters and go after a criminal with a big reward available for his capture. The film comes from a pitch that turned into a script by Lona Williams (Drop Dead Gorgeous, Scouts vs. Zombies) and is now being rewritten by Pam Brady, a producer and writer for "South Park" who also scripted Team America: World Police. Could we be looking at an R-rated comedy for this one? Mann has held her own in Apatow's films Knocked Up and This is 40, so she has the chops for it, but this would be her first time leading an R-rated comedy if that's what this turns into. Stay tuned.
