Melissa McCarthy-Starring ‘Tammy’ Grabs Beth McCarthy-Miller As Director

Posted by , on January 9, 2012 at 7:49 pm 

Following the nearly two-month old departure by Tate Taylor, Variety reports that Tammy has found a new director. They report that the Melissa McCarthy-starrer will now be helmed by Beth McCarthy-Miller (no relation), who worked with the actress on the TV series Samantha Who?, while also doing work for shows such as 30 Rock and Californication.

Some might be a little disappointed at the switch from one to the other, but the story — “a woman who gets laid off from her fast-food job and finds her husband is cheating, and chucks her life to take a road trip of self-discovery with her foul-mouthed diabetic grandmother” — might not require the most visually skilled filmmaker to translate to the screen — not that I’m saying McCarthy-Miller is a bad one, though. I just imagine that the actual film will end up relying on the strength of McCarthy‘s central performance and screenplay, above all else, and I already have high hopes for both. Much of the rest is secondary, you see.

What do you make of this directorial hire?
