Following the recent new trailer for Paul Feig's comedy Spy starring Melissa McCarthy, now we have another look at the future Ghostbusters star's next comedy coming next spring. Michelle Darnell follows McCarthy as the title character, a  titan of industry sent to prison after she’s convicted of insider trading. Once released, she aims to be rebranded as America's next sweetheart. And the first photo from the film features McCarthy working to restore her image as she leads a troop of girl scouts called Darnell's Darlings in a scheme to sell brownies. And Kristen Bell is also there alongside the troop as Darnell's assistant.

Here's the first look at Ben Falcone's Michelle Darnell from Entertainment Weekly:

Michelle Darnell is directed by Ben Falcone (Tammy) who co-wrote the script with wife and star Melissa McCarthy and Groundlings improv colleague Steve Mallory. The film follows Michelle Darnell (McCarthy), a titan of industry who is sent to prison after she’s caught for insider trading. When she emerges ready to rebrand herself as America’s latest sweetheart, not everyone she screwed over is so quick to forgive and forget. Kristen Bell and Kathy Bates star in the film which Universal is set to release on April 8th, 2016.

Anyone else getting tired of Melissa McCarthy? She was solid in Bridesmaids and pretty much most films where she's a supporting character. But all these movies she's been in as the main character....they're all the same and it's getting old fast. "Spy" looks like another "Tammy".
