Described as in the vein of Rodney Dangerfield’s 1986 comedy Back to School, Life of the Party stars McCarthy, Maya Rudolph, Gillian Jacobs, Jacki Weaver, Molly Gordon and Jessie Ennis and hits theaters May 11, 2018.

Arjona is set to play “a sorority sister with issues.”

Ben Falcone directs Life of the Party from a script he co-wrote with McCarthy.

Life of the Party begins filming this week in Atlanta.

Arjona next will be seen starring in NBC’s Emerald City opposite Vincent D’Onofrio and MGM’s The Belko Experiment, written and produced by James Gunn and set to premiere at TIFF next month.

Her credits also include HBO’s True Detective and Netflix’s Narcos.

Directed by Clay Liford, who also wrote the screenplay, the coming of age drama focuses on a teenage erotic fan fiction author. The title is a reference to the fan fiction genre that imagines sexual relationships between fictional characters who aren’t canonically an item (think Captain Kirk/Spock or Spider-Man/Batman).

Ramos will star opposite Michael Johnston, Hannah Marks, Michael Ian Black, Missi Pyle, Peter Vack, Jessie Ennis and Matt Peters in the film.

Ramos, who most recently starred on NBC’s Parenthood, appeared on American Dreams, Scrubs, Close to Home, Ghost Whisperer, Law & Order, Wizards of Waverly Place, Without a Trace and Lie to Me.
