“Tammy,” which also stars Allison Janney, Susan Sarandon and Mark Duplass, began shooting last spring with McCarthy starring with spouse Ben Falcone. McCarthy and Falcone are also producing along with Will Ferrell and Adam McKay through their Gary Sanchez banmer.
“Tammy” follows a women who, after losing her job and learning that her husband has been unfaithful, hits the road with her profane, hard-drinking grandmother (played by Sarandon). McCarthy and Falcone co-wrote the script and Falcone directed.
The film opens July 2.
