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.

She is no longer alive.
