Melissa McCarthy — Who Will She Team Up With After ‘Tammy’?

We all know that Melissa is hysterical, and she has worked with some pretty funny people, too. Does Kristen Wiig or Sandra Bullock ring a bell?

Despite her A-list costars, we wanted to know who’s on Melissa’s wish list for her next big thing. So who does she want to team up with next?

“It’s like picking you’re favorite song — I can’t do it!” Melissa told EXCLUSIVELY at a private NYC screening of Tammy on June 26. “There’s a list a mile long!”

Tammy producer, and her husband, Ben, stepped in very quickly, helping Melissa out: “What I know is Susan [Sarandon] and Kathy [Bates] were on the list and you know…”

…that they ended up in the movie.

“Yes! That’s two,” Melissa told us, “but the problem is for the next one, I then don’t want them to go away! So I’m like a greedy kid that I’m like, ‘Okay, now I have to do everything with them, then I’ll bring Sandy [Bullock], then I’ll bring Jason Bateman.’ I’ve had such a good, lucky run of working with the nicest people that when things end, I get so sad.”

We don’t blame her! With A-listers like that, what else do you need?

Melissa McCarthy & Husband Collaborate On ‘Tammy’

Have no fear, everyone! The hysterical husband-wife duo is gracing us with yet another funny film sometime — hopefully, in the near future.

“The next movie that we are writing up tentatively has 70 main characters,” Ben tells EXCLUSIVELY. “Just so we can put everybody in it,” Melissa added.

Until then, you can get your Melissa fix with Tammy, which hits theaters July 2!
