[Now Filming] Melissa McCarthy Comedy ‘Tammy’ Starts Shooting In NC
Braidsmaids breakout star Melissa McCarthy’s new comedy Tammy will begin principal photography around Wilmington, North Carolina next week, as crews were already filming scenes in Brunswick County and Boiling Spring Lakes this week.
Tammy is a raucous road trip comedy written and to be directed by McCarthy and her husband and co-star Ben Falcone.
The production will be shooting in and around Wilmington for a few months starting on May 3, according to Star News.
The all-star cast also includes Susan Sarandon (Thelma and Louise), Dan Akroyd (Ghostbusters), Kathy Bates (Misery), and Toni Collette (The Sixth Sense).
In the film, after losing her job and learning that her husband has been unfaithful, a woman (McCarthy) hits the road with her profane, hard-drinking grandmother (Sarandon).
