The New Line comedy was written by McCarthy and husband Ben Falcone.

Life of the Party, the comedy from Melissa McCarthy and husband Ben Falcone, will hit theaters on May 11, 2018.

New Line's college-set comedy stars Gillian Jacobs as a sorority girl, with the project being described in the vein of Rodney Dangerfield's Back to School.

McCarthy and Falcone wrote the script for the film, which Falcone will direct. Chris Henchy is producing, with Warner Bros. handling distribution.

Even though it is nearly two years away, May 2018 is already shaping up to be a busy month at the movie theater. Marvel's The Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 is set to open on May 4 and DreamWork's How to Train Your Dragon 3 will hit theaters on May 18. The highly anticipated Han Solo stand-alone Star Wars movie will blast its way into theaters on May 25.
