Melissa McCarthy has to be the biggest comedienne right now. Since her role in Bridesmaids, she has been everywhere. Her next big comedy has her up against Sandra Bullock in The Heat. The film centers around the relationship between McCarthy’s unprofessional Boston PD officer and Bullock’s uptight FBI agent. The supporting cast includes Michael Rapaport, Tony Hale, Demain Bichir, Kaitlin Olson, and Taran Killam. Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) directed the film and Kate Dippold wrote the screenplay.
“Uptight and straight-laced, FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn (Sandra Bullock) is a methodical investigator with a reputation for excellence–and hyper-arrogance. Shannon Mullins (Melissa McCarthy), one of Boston P.D.’s “finest,” is foul-mouthed and has a very short fuse, and uses her gut instinct and street smarts to catch the most elusive criminals. Neither has ever had a partner, or a friend for that matter. When these two wildly incompatible law officers join forces to bring down a ruthless drug lord, they become the last thing anyone expected: buddies. From Paul Feig, the director of “Bridesmaids.””
The Heat is in theatres April 5, 2013.
