Super Intelligence is an upcoming American action comedy film directed by Ben Falcone and written by Steve Mallory. Melissa McCarthy will star in what will be her fourth collaboration with her husband, Falcone. The film will be released on December 25, 2019 by Warner Bros. Pictures.[1][2]

Premise[edit]

Nothing extraordinary ever happens to Carol Peters, so when she starts getting snarky backtalk from her TV, phone and microwave, she thinks she’s being punked. Or losing her mind. In fact, the world’s first superintelligence has selected her for observation, taking over her life…with a bigger, more ominous plan to take over everything. Now Carol is humanity’s last chance before this artificial intelligence-with-an-attitude decides to pull the plug.

Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

In July 2017, it was reported that New Line Cinema had purchased the screenplay by Steve Mallory, with Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone onboard the project to produce through their On the Day Productions banner.[3][4] In April 2018, it was announced that McCarthy would star in the film and Falcone would direct it, marking their fourth actor-director collaboration.[5][6] In June 2018, James Corden joined the cast, to voice the titular "Super Intelligence".[7] In July 2018, Bobby Cannavale, Brian Tyree Henry, and Sam Richardson joined the cast.[8][9][10]

The film started principal production immediately after McCarthy wrapped a starring role in The Kitchen, on July 16, 2018.[5][11]
