According to DWA, “B.O.O. (Bureau of Otherworldly Operations) is the superclassified agency you've never heard of and certainly never seen. Dedicated to protecting humans from evil hauntings, the agents of B.O.O. have a secret weapon: They are ghosts themselves! When newbie agents Jackson Moss (Rogen) and his odd-ball partner Watts (McCarthy) uncover a plot to destroy B.O.O. by the agency's Most Wanted Haunter, they must use every trick in their arsenal to defeat his powerful ghost army and save Earth from a ghostly fate.”
Maryann Garger, whose credits include Astro Boy and Flushed Away is producing. Tom Wheeler (Puss in Boots) wrote the script.
The movie has a June 5, 2015, release date penciled in.
McCarthy previously did voice work on TV’s Kim Possible and did an episode of DWA’s The Penguins of Madagascar TV series.
