Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer star in new Superhero movie!
We’ve been saying it for years, right? Plus size romantic interest. Plus size boss who isn’t stereotypically “jolly!” Plus size…. super hero!
Yes! Hollywood has listened… or rather Atlanta, where “Thunder Force” is currently being filmed.
“Thunder Force” has sprung into action! Co-Stars Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer were recently spotted on set on the streets of the city filming. The project is a take on the superhero and comic book genre and follows two ordinary women who suddenly develop superpowers, ushering them to a higher calling…. Ala “Shazam” or “Green Lantern.”
The film is written and directed by Ben Falcone, McCarthy’s husband. He will likely make a cameo as he often does!
“Thunder Force” is expected to be released on Netflix in 2020. They are currently doing open casting calls for folks to portray media members and officials, as well as gala ball attendees.
On March 29, 2019 it was announced that Netflix had greenlit a superhero comedy film entitled Thunder Force to be written and directed by Ben Falcone, with Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer as those two lead roles. Since then, the project has really picked up steam!
