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.
