Melissa McCarthy to Make Her Directorial Debut

Actor Ben Falcone and actress Melissa McCarthy attend the Premiere Of Universal Pictures' "Identity Theft" on February 4, 2013 in Westwood, California.

Fresh off creating a production company, Melissa McCarthy and husband Ben Falcone have found their next project: Tammy. We already knew they wrote the script together for her to star, but Variety reports they have signed on to also direct the film together — a first for both. McCarthy will play a woman who, after losing her job and learning that her husband cheated on her, decides to go on a road trip with her grandmother. Considering their comedic road-trip experience, we wonder if Jason Bateman is out buying a grandma costume right now.
