Duplass will play the ‘man’ that McCarthy meets on her road trip, Sarandon would star as the grandmother.

Kathy Bates will also have a role in the film.

McCarthy will co-direct the project with her husband, Ben Falcone (“Bridesmaids”, “What to Expect When You’re Expecting”). The duo also wrote the script together.
