Paul Feig and ‘Parks and Rec’ Writer Katie Dippold Are Making Another Movie Together
Paul Feig, the creator of Freaks and Geeks and director of Bridesmaids, has a new movie called The Heat out this summer that was written by Parks and Rec writer Katie Dippold, and Deadline reports that the duo is already working on another movie together. The plot of the new project is being kept secret, but it’s described as a “mother/daughter action-comedy.” Feig and Dippold’s first collaboration, The Heat, a buddy cop movie starring Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock, tested so well that Fox moved it to July 4th weekend, expecting it to be a big summer hit. The Heat is Dippold’s first movie after spending three seasons writing for Parks and Recreation and over a decade improvising at the UCB Theatre. The fact that studio moved the release to the summer and somebody already ordered a new movie from the creative team should inspire some excitement should raise your expectations for The Heat sky high if they aren’t already there.
