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. Obviously the director and the star enjoy working with one another, but right now the only thing that might stand in the way of their next project is McCarthy's commitments to her CBS television series Mike & Molly.
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. With numbers like that, a sequel seems a no-brainer, but one half of the funny film’s leading ladies isn’t quite on board with for bringing back The Heat.
White House Down Stumbles At Friday Box Office, While The Heat Takes Over
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. And he's got Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx (as the President, for God's sake!) running around trying to stop the terrorists who did it

Watts (McCarthy) is the oddball partner to Rogen’s Jackson Moss in the titular Bureau, which is a super duper secret government agency founded to keep ghosts from haunting innocent humans.

Is Melissa McCarthy's Photoshopping In The Heat Poster The Worst Ever?

But the above poster for the movie seems to be attempting to change McCarthy's face entirely
Melissa McCarthy Throws An Extra Off The Set Of Tammy For Allegedly Abusing A Child
The situation became an issue when McCarthy caught the mother jerking the child in the air by the wrist. Unsurprisingly, McCarthy fired the woman and had production assistants take the woman off the premises, the actress saying she wouldn’t tolerate abuse on her set.
Sandra Bullock And Melissa McCarthy Try Good-Cop/Bad-Cop In The Heat Clip
I believe that Feig’s Heat will live or die based on the chemistry shared between these two funny ladies, and there’s tremendous interplay between Bullock and McCarthy that I think is going to help turn this into a smash hit.
Melissa McCarthy And Sandra Bullock Get Tough In First Clip From The Heat
If there's anyone who can save us from what feels like an uninspiring summer movie season, it's Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy. The unlikely comic duo is teaming up for The Heat, the next film from Bridesmaids director Paul Feig that changes genres entirely, casting the two as FBI agents who aren't exactly good at working with partners
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
