Sandra Bullock & Melissa McCarthy Starring in Buddy Cop Flick — Will You Watch? (POLL)
Deadline is reporting that Oscar winner Sandra Bullock and Bridesmaids’ breakout star Melissa McCarthy will star together in a buddy cop flick, but not many other details are known. While most people think of men when it comes to cop movies (Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg in The Other Guys, Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill in 21 Jump Street) we think it’s refreshing to put a spin on this timeless genre.
Also, it seems as though this movie will be a bit of a Bridesmaids’ reunion — so you know it’s going to be hilarious!
Director Paul Feig, who was the helmer behind the 2011 sleeper hit Bridesmaids, will direct Melissa, 41, and Sandra, 47, in the untitled project.
According to Deadline, the film “details the strained working relationship between an uptight FBI agent, played by Oscar winner Bullock, and an unconventional Boston cop, played by Oscar nominee McCarthy.” We know that Bullock has experience playing and FBI agent thanks to the classic 2000 film, Miss Congeniality.
This is just one of the few projects Melissa has in the works, as she’ll also star in Judd Apatow’s Knocked Up sequel This Is 40 (out in Decemeber) and she also just started filming Identity Theft with Horrible Bosses star Jason Bateman.
Looks like Melissa is the new queen of comedy!
