The first trailer just hit from director Paul Feig’s (Bridesmaids) new buddy cop film starring Sarndra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy. In it, they both play law enforcement officials who are rough around the edges and not liked by anyone in their departments. They are then partnered up and comedy hijynx ensue.
The Heat is set for an April 5th, 2013 release and also stars Demian Bichir, Tony Hale, Taran Killam, Thomas F. Wilson, and Michael Rapaport.
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.”
