Director Paul Feig's Buddy-Cop Comedy With Sandra Bullock & Melissa McCarthy Now Called 'The Heat'

Seems like only days ago that we reported that Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky (“Bad Teacher,” “The Office,” “Year One”) were rewriting the script for director Paul Feig's buddy-cop comedy follow-up to "Bridesmaids" that will star Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy — and basically, that's because it was only days ago. Apparently, the first order of business was to give the film a title, which is now "The Heat."

Seems like only days ago that we reported that Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky (“Bad Teacher,” “The Office,” “Year One”) were rewriting the script for director Paul Feig's buddy-cop comedy follow-up to "Bridesmaids" that will star Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy — and basically, that's because it was only days ago. Apparently, the first order of business was to give the film a title, which is now "The Heat."

Written by "Parks and Recreation" scribe Katie Dippold , the film centers around the strained relationship between a high-strung FBI agent and a "unconventional" Boston police officer. Also joining them in some way is YouTube comic Spoken Reasons, who will play a character named Terrell Rojas, though all other details about the character are unknown.

"The Heat" is yet another project for Feig and McCarthy after teaming up in "Bridesmaids." There's "Dumb Jock" and another romantic comedy and an "unconventional love story" that could co-star Jon Hamm, though they might all be the same project. However, "The Heat" looks like it's in the pole position for now, and if Eisenberg and Stupnitsky can finish the script in time for McCarthy to squeeze in shooting the film before she heads back into another season of CBS' "Mike and Molly," we're anxious to see what kind of damage Bullock and McCarthy can do together. Oh, and Spoken Reasons too. The film is currently slated for an April 5, 2013 release. [Deadline]
