Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy are looking tough in The Heat poster
We haven’t reported a lot of news on the action comedy THE HEAT (click the link to watch the trailer) starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy but I have a sneaky suspicion that it will appeal to a large audience and be quite the success. The release date moved from April 5th to June 28th, which will be coming up in just a few short weeks. Today, we get a new poster with the female stars looking pretty butch. Everyone seems to love Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy steals the show in just about anything she’s in so I think the two teaming up for a buddy cop comedy is a gold mine that will probably produce a few sequels in the vain of LETHAL WEAPON, RUSH HOUR or BAD BOYS. I can’t believe the studios haven’t tried the formula with female leads before. Directed by Paul Feig, THE HEAT stars: Sandra Bullock, Melissa McCarthy, Kaitlin Olson (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), Taran Killam, Michael Rapaport, Marlon Wayans and Thomas F. Wilson. THE HEAT will hit theaters on June 28th, 2013.
THE HEAT official synopsis: Uptight FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn (Sandra Bullock) and foul-mouthed Boston cop Shannon Mullins (Melissa McCarthy) couldn’t be more incompatible. But when they join forces to bring down a ruthless drug lord, they become the last thing anyone expected: buddies. From Paul Feig, director of “Bridesmaids.”
