Right after The Heat hit, the team got together on an idea for a sequel, and Katie Dippold actually went the distance in writing a screenplay for it. Done deal, right? Not according to Paul Feig.

Melissa McCarthy and Susan Sarandon end up in a car together, and they are heading to Niagara Falls, creating chaos along the way as they learn a bit more about each other… and a bit more about themselves.

Feig and McCarthy first collaborated on Bridesmaids in 2011 and got rave reviews for their work together, which led them to reteam on The Heat earlier this year.

Sandra Bullock Shuts Down Idea Of The Heat Sequel
Not only has it won critical praise, but also the R-rated buddy cop caper has proved a big hit for Fox, banking more than $150 million worldwide to date.

Alright, people, I don't know what else we can possibly give you. It's just before the Fourth of July, and you need something to see at the movies. Roland Emmerich, the guy who brought you Independence Day is back, and he's once again blowing up the White House. And the Capitol.

Sandra Bullock And Melissa McCarthy Try Good-Cop/Bad-Cop In The Heat Clip

Melissa McCarthy Will Star Opposite A Conniving Bill Murray In St. Vincent De Van Nuys
Who could possibly picture Murray as a corrupt, thieving, lying gambler? McCarthy will play his new neighbor, a single mother whose multi-shift hospital schedule forces her hand in asking De Van Nuys to look after her good-hearted 12-year-old son. Though the elder gentleman subjects the boy to much of his bad behavior, only the positive aspects are filtered through. It’s hard to see where this project could go wrong, especially if Melfi’s script is as affecting as its buzz has implied
