Bullock made two (yes, two) “Miss Congeniality” movies, where she played an FBI agent, and McCarthy got all hot on an air marshal in her Oscar-nominated role in “Bridesmaids.”
Now the two actresses are teaming up for the newest movie from the director of “Bridesmaids,” Paul Feig. In “The Heat,” both McCarthy and Bullock play officers of the law, tasked with bringing down a drug lord.
Check out a NSFW trailer (via IGN) and plot synopsis after the jump!
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” opens in theaters on April 5, 2013.
