MELISSA MCCARTHY WILL BE MASTER FORGER IN 'CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME?' 'DIARY OF A CHAMBERMAID' PERIOD SET TRAILER & POSTER WITH LEA SEYDOUX

  MELISSA MCCARTHY
ASKS 'CAN YOU FORGIVE ME?'
As 'Deadline' reports today, while she's waiting to see if GHOSTBUSTERS will flop or fly, Melissa McCarthy has another new project just signed: she will lead CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME? based on Lee Israel memoir.
  Israel was a magazine writer and author in the 1970s and ’80s who specialized in profiles of big name entertainment figures. But when the work dried up, she turned to selling letters she had forged from dead writers and actors, and eventually she began stealing actual letters from various archives before she was arrested in 1993. She is no longer alive.

  'DIARY OF A CHAMBERMAID'
STARRING LEA SEYDOUX
In the trailer department here's an international one for Lea Seydoux's DIARY OF A CHAMBERMAID set  in the early 1900s, in the French provinces. C√©lestine a beautiful and libertarian young woman, who has been hired as a chambermaid by the Lanlaires, arrives from Paris at the train station. Joseph, her masters' gruff gardener takes her to the house where she is to work. She is "welcomed" by Mr. Lanlaire who immediately starts fondling her. She then meets Mrs. Lanlaire, a very unpleasant woman with a class superiority. All this bodes ill for the future...

  1. Interesting story line for the new Melissa McCarthy movie. It's hard to believe someone would actually do that.

    1. I think half of today's 'journalists' are making up stories

  4. I hadn't heard of Lee Isreal- but I can see how Lee's actions would make for an interesting book or movie. Shady! The picture of Melissa is hard to place with the movie description- but maybe I'd have to see it or read it to understand.

    The Diary of a Chambermaid definitely looks more sinister than I was expecting. :)

    1. The photo is not connected with the film itself, I've chose that photo because it's cute and because I needed a brownish one for the tone of the post :)

  5. Can You Forgive Me? sounds like a great story, but they put that McCarthy creature in it. If she had a minor role, I'd still watch it, but not if she's the lead role.

    Diary of a Chambermaid looks great. Oooh I hope something very bad happens to those horrid people she works for. The mistress of the house is wretched and it would be fitting if someone did use a pinch of arsenic in place of a pinch of salt on her food.

    1. I'm very anxious to see if her Ghostbusters will flop or not, it is the trailer with the highest number of minuses at YouTube ever.

      Wretched was the life of servants in old times... I truly cannot imagine such a life... especially if you're more intelligent and cleverer than your masters but still have to put up with their whims... I often had editors in some of the publishing houses I worked for who were clearly less educated and less of experts in the field than me but were still the ones marking my translations

    2. Agreed. Wish she'd take a few roles like her Gilmore Girls character again. We loved her as Sookie. Not so much as the trailer trash, loud mouth roles she's been playing these past few years.

    3. yes, she even gets trashy as Molly sometimes.... it seems that has become her thing

  9. As if being a chambermaid doesn't suck enough. Lee Israel sounds like quite a character. Hopefully Melissa can pull her off. I love her but must wonder if there were not better actresses for this role. Like a Meryl Streep type.
