Melissa McCarthy shows up at Atlanta screening of "Spy"

Melissa McCarthy is in Atlanta filming "Michelle Darnell," which her husband Ben Falcone is directing.

That project has been filming in the Castleberry Hill area.

She took a little time off to delight Atlanta fans at a screening of her current movie, "Spy," on Monday night. She and her selfie stick joined hundreds of her new best friends at the Regal Atlantic Station.

Both Melissa and Ben have spent time in Atlanta before. He was in "What to Expect When You're Expecting" and she was in "Identity Thief," both of which filmed here.

"Spy" opens May 22.
