Variety reports that Sandra Bullock is joining Melissa McCarthy and Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) for an untitled female buddy comedy and it will center on the strained relationship between a high-strung FBI agent and a “unconventional” Boston police officer. If it’s not clear who will play who, well, then you clearly need to watch more movies. “Parks and Recreation” scribe Katie Dippold has written the script, Feig will direct, naturally, Bullock and McCarthy will star while Chermin Entertainment will produce. Twentieth Century Fox will distribute.
Gravity, the upcoming thriller starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as astronauts stranded at a space station, has been pushed to a 2013 release, studio Warner Bros. announced on Monday.

The ‘Blind Side’ actress has been selected to be admitted into the 2012 Warren Easton Hall of Fame, for her charitable donations to Warren Eason Charter High School, which was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
Sandra has been involved in charitable projects with the educational establishment since the natural disaster and this year is donating $25,000 in scholarships, according to Fox8live.com.
The 20th Annual Hall of Fame Ceremony will take place on Friday, May 18th in Easton’s auditorium.
Sandra is well known for her philanthropy. Last year she donated $1 million on behalf of her family to the American Red Cross’ Japan relief effort after the country was hit by an earthquake. She also gave $1 million to Doctors Without Borders to assist with helping Haiti following an earthquake in 2010.
The expectations are sky-high for Alfonso Cuarón‘s Gravity, the director’s first film since 2006?s Children of Men. In fact, between the A-list cast (Sandra Bullock and George Clooney), its intriguing sci-fi premise, its ambitious long shots, and gushing praise from colleagues like Guillermo del Toro, we have plenty of reason to believe the film could be his most brilliant yet. On the other hand, this wouldn’t be the first time we’ve been dead wrong about a movie this early on.
This week in Pasadena, Gravity had its first test screening, and while the cut was apparently very rough, audiences saw enough to form some strong opinions about it. From here, it sounds like it could be this year’s Tree of Life — gorgeous, innovative, worthy of acclaim, and perhaps a little divisive. Hit the jump to see some reactions.
Our Germain Lussier didn’t actually attend the viewing, but he’s heard some others talking about it:
VERY unfinished but heard it’s visually ambitious, interesting but not world-changing.
The Film Stage‘s Jordan Raup, wasn’t present either, but the reactions he heard were more wholeheartedly positive:
Despite rough FX, hear good things about last night’s Gravity screening. “Masterpiece, phenomenal, visually amazing.” We’ll see in 200 days.
I have added – finally! – screen captures of 2002 movie “Divine Secrets of Ya-Ya Sisterhood”. Check it:
