The athletic range is set to debut next fall

Melissa McCarthy is crossing off one of her lifelong goals from her list: She's becoming a fashion designer. The St. Vincent actress is launching a casual sportswear collection that will debut fall 2015.

According to WWD, McCarthy has signed a multiyear deal with Gerard Guez's Sunrise Brands (which owns Superdry, American Rag, People's Liberation and Seven7 Jeans) to reinterpret Seven7's current line with standard- and plus-size casual athletic wear. Not only will the line be affordable (priced between $39 and $118), it will also offer luxe details such as "technology-driven denim fit solutions."

Details including the collection's name and the retailers that will sell its pieces have yet to be revealed.
