*Tammy (Melissa McCarthy) is having a bad day. She’s totaled her clunker car, gotten fired from her thankless job at a greasy burger joint, and instead of finding comfort at home, finds her husband getting comfortable with the neighbor in her own house.
It’s time to take her boom box and book it. The bad news is she’s broke and without wheels. The worse news is her grandma, Pearl (Susan Sarandon), is her only option—with a car, cash, and an itch to see Niagara Falls. Not exactly the escape Tammy had in mind. But on the road, with grandma riding shot gun, it may be just what Tammy needs.
Joining Oscar® nominee Melissa McCarthy (“Bridesmaids”) and Academy Award® winner Susan Sarandon (“Dead Man Walking,”) are: Allison Janney (“The Help”) playing Tammy’s world-weary mom, Deb; Gary Cole (“Pineapple Express,” TV’s “VEEP”) as ladies man Earl; and Mark Duplass (TV’s “The Mindy Project”) as his son, Bobby; with Dan Aykroyd (“The Campaign”) as Don and Academy Award® winner Kathy Bates (“Misery,” “Midnight in Paris”) as Pearl’s fun-loving cousin Lenore. Rounding out the cast are Toni Collette (“Little Miss Sunshine”) in the role of the neighbor, Missi; and Nat Faxon (“Bad Teacher”) as Tammy’s husband, Greg.
The screenplay is by Melissa McCarthy & Ben Falcone. Will Ferrell (“The Campaign”) and Adam McKay (“The Campaign”) are producing the film with McCarthy. Rob Cowan, Falcone, Chris Henchy, Kevin Messick, Toby Emmerich, Richard Brenner and Michael Disco are serving as executive producers.
The behind-the-scenes team includes director of photography Russ Alsobrook (“Paul Blart: Mall Cop”), production designer Jefferson Sage (“This is 40”), and editor Mike Sale (“Bridesmaids”). The music is composed by Michael Andrews (“Bad Teacher”).
Scheduled for release on July 2, 2014, “Tammy” is a presentation of New Line Cinema and will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment company.
