The movie isn’t even out yet but Fox is already developing the script for a sequel for “The Heat”, according Deadline:
The Heat, the Paul Feig-directed comedy that stars Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock is sequel bound. Chernin Entertainment and Fox have already made a pricey deal with Katie Dippold to script the sequel. I told you recently about another deal they made with Dippold for an edgy mother/daughter comedy vehicle for Feig, but evidently that deal included an assignment for her to write the sequel. Dippold wrote The Heat, about mismatched female FBI agents in Boston, with ads that look like they are going to continue McCarthy’s ascension as a top physical comedienne, grounded by Bullock’s prudish counterpart. Dippold’s repped by WME and 3 Arts.
Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy’s buddy cop comedy “The Heat” will be screened in advance for Boston police officers and FBI agents.
The city was stunned Monday after twin bombings at the Boston Marathon killed three people and injured scores more.
Bullock, who plays an uptight “Miss Congeniality”-esque FBI agent sent to work on a case in Boston in the film, thought the screening was a small token of appreciation.
“It’s been an amazing tightknit community before this happened, and it just bonded a community even more. I don’t think a screening would ever be enough, feel like it’s enough to do for them.
I think having been there, having had our entire crew around us all the time, who are all from Boston, you’re just hoping. And when you see the aftermath, I try to look on the other side, which is, ‘Look how amazing the people were. Look at those people that ran toward everyone without thinking twice about themselves.’ “
Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy hold each other at the Twentieth Century Fox presentation to promote their film The Heat at Caesars Palace during 2013 CinemaCon on Thursday (April 18) in Las Vegas, Nev.

A new international trailer has been released for “The Heat”, which is set for an April 5 release.
Check the red band trailer for upcoming “The Heat“, which will be released next April 05th, 2013!
A by-the-book Federal agent. A take-no-prisoners Boston detective. Forced to work together to bust a drug ring. It’s the tried and true buddy-cop formula from movies like Lethal Weapon, 48 HRS., and The Other Guys, but director Paul Feig is hoping to prove once again that the ladies can do anything as well as the guys can. In 2011, Feig helped a party of Bridesmaids led by Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy crash the box office to the tune of $169 million, trashing the notion that you need a Y-chromosome to score R-rated hilarity. In The Heat, out in April, Feig and McCarthy are raising the stakes even higher, recruiting Sandra Bullock to bust some crooks in an R-rated action-comedy.
In the new trailer McCarthy and Bullock’s characters get off on the wrong foot, but pity the perp who crosses them — especially if he weighs more than they can lift. Feig tells EW about reuniting with McCarthy, what ’80s buddy-cop movie was The Heat‘s real inspiration, and how the movie will showcase another side to America’s Sweetheart Sandra Bullock.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Nice trailer. Now which one was Cagney and which was Lacey?
PAUL FEIG: Exactly. It’s a whole new twist, my friend. No, I’m really proud of it because the irony is doing a green-band trailer is kinda hard. We’re definitely a good R-rated movie. But the first trailer definitely gives you a feel for these characters and the chemistry between them. These two actresses are just so funny together. Now they’re like best friends in real life, so the chemistry just comes through.
Check out the amazing new trailer for “The Heat”, starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCartney:
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 will hit theaters next April 05th!
