The Help director Tate Taylor to Direct Melissa McCarthy Comedy

It's official.  According to the Hollywood Reporter, The Help director Tate Taylor is set to direct rising star Melissa McCarthy in a comedy which she wrote.

 Taylor is riding the success of The Help, as he should and it looks like since September McCarthy and Taylor have been in talks and finally confirmed the deal with New Line.

 Project centers round an overweight woman who is laid off from her job at Hardee's, discovers her husband is having an affair and decided to go on a road trip with her alcoholic, foul-mouthed, diabetic grandmother.

McCarthy co-wrote the script with her husband Ben Falcone (he plaied the air marshal in Bridesmaids)
