Late-night host James Corden is lending his voice to Super Intelligence a new Melissa McCarthy comedy from New Line Cinema that is about to begin production.

Ben Falcone, McCarthy’s husband, is directing the movie, written by Steve Mallory, in which McCarthy will play a former corporate executive whose earnest yet unfulfilled life is turned upside when she is selected for observation by the world’s first super intelligence, a form of artificial life that may be on the verge of taking over everything.

Corden will be heard as an all-powerful AI voice that speaks through various outlets during the course of the pic, which is scheduled for release on Christmas Day 2019 via Warner Bros.

In addition to hosting CBS' The Late Late Show With James Corden, the performer recently voiced the title character in Peter Rabbit and appears in the flesh in Ocean’s 8. Corden is repped by CAA and United Agents. The casting was first reported by Variety.
