After “Bridesmaids” hit screens last summer the majority of speculation was around what its leading ladies would be up to next, and although Kristen Wiig was front and center in Paul Feig’s comedy it was Melissa McCarthy who most people wanted to talk about. Twelve months (and an Oscar nomination) later and the only real chance we’ve had to see her again is (sadly) in CBS’ “Mike and Molly.” Next up for McCarthy is a small role in Judd Apatow’s “This is 40,” and she’s also got Seth Gordon’s “Identity Thief” slated for next summer.

If you were a child of the '80s, you likely spent some time with "Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?" the first in a series of best-selling, educational and actually pretty entertaining video games that mixed history and geography in the guise of a spyhunt. The basic premise was that you had to catch the dastardly Carmen Sandiego and her V.I.L.E. henchmen by answering a bunch of clues about the locations in the world where they could be hiding. The video game was eventually turned into the awesome '90s kids educational game show, and of course Hollywood came knocking. Disney tried to do something with the property in the '90s with Sandra Bullock but it never went anywhere, but now someone different is gonna ruin another childhood staple.
