is in some serious negotiations to join previously announced Melissa McCarthy
in the upcoming movie titled Tammy
! And yes, we are
talking about a completely new road trip
comedy, which comes from McCarthy and her husband Ben Falcone
who is on board to direct the whole thing!
At this moment we know that McCarthy and Falcone stand behind the Tammy
script which will reportedly revolve around:
…a woman who is laid off from her job at a fast food restaurant, discovers her husband is having an affair and decides to go on a road trip with her alcoholic, foul-mouthed, diabetic grandmother.
So, we already know that McCarthy is set to play the above mentioned fast food restaurant employee, while, according to THR
, Sarandon jumps in to star as her grandmother.
In addition to Sarandon, Kathy Bates
is also attached to star as the grandmother’s lesbian friend
who saves the duo from some bad spots.
Will Ferrell and Adam McKay will produce the project along with McCarthy, while Kevin Messick, Chris Henchy, Ben Falcone and Rob Cowan will executive produce the whole thing.
Stay tuned for more updates!
