While we have yet to see them share a screen together, big or small, Melissa and Amy have apparently been trying to find a project together for a year! A source tells OKMagazine.com exclusively, “The studio’s salivating over this pairing—with Melissa on board, this movie’s going to be a sure-fire hit.”

They can say that again. Pretty much every movie Melissa is in gets rave reviews, and she is one of the most sought-after actresses in Hollywood after the success of 2011 comedy Bridesmaids. So it is no surprise she is also one of the highest-paid actresses of 2015 with an estimated $23 million in combined earnings, according to Forbes.

So what will her project with Amy entail, aside from a ton of laughs? The film will of course be a comedy project, and insiders say it will be about a mother-daughter relationship.

“Amy has some seriously big names queued up to play her mom in this movie, but she’s always had her heart set on Melissa. She was worried Melissa would object as she’s way too young to play her mom, but that can be turned into a funny storyline,” says the source.

And this is perfect, as talented screenwriter/producer Judd Apatow produced Bridemaids, which essentially established Melissa as a movie star, and he also directed Trainwreck. Clearly Melissa and Amy are meant to be.
