Key & Peele's Valets Love Sandra Bullock

Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key stopped by The Tonight Show on Friday and had the good fortune to follow Sandra Bullock, as Bullocks herself is the centerpiece of this upcoming Key & Peele sketch involving the show's popular, name-skewing valets. So far, Key and Peele have a pretty good track record of people enjoying their sketches about them.

There's Already a Sequel for 'The Heat' in the Works

Fox is very confident that its upcoming Melissa McCarthy-Sandra Bullock buddy cop comedy The Heat will be a hit – so confident, in fact, that they've already started work on a sequel. Deadline reports that the studio has made "a pricey deal" with Katie Dippold, who scripted the first movie and previously wrote for Parks and Rec, to write a sequel. While it's a little crazy for the studio to be putting money and time into a sequel to a movie that doesn't come out until the summer, this kind of practice is fairly common in Hollywood. Jonah Hill and Michael Bacall were hired to write a 21 [...]

'The Heat' Trailer: Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock Could Be the Best Buddy Cops Ever

Here's the brand new trailer for Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy's new buddy cop movie The Heat, which is directed by Paul Feig (Freaks and Geeks, Bridesmaids) and written by Katie Dippold (Parks and Rec). Expectations are high.

Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock Team Up for And Then There Was Gordon

Taking a break from staring at each other's perfectly symmetrical faces in platonic awe, Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock join And Then There Was Gordon, an animated series co-written by Reynolds and Allan Loeb for Fox. Sort of an inside-out Allen Gregory, Gordon focuses on "an ordinary child surrounded by his prodigy siblings and brilliant, but neurotic mother," allegedly played by Bullock. Having already portrayed a socially awkward genius in All About Steve, at least we know that Sandra is capable of…good god, just so, so much more than All About Steve.

Sandra Bullock Doesn't Want to Make a Sequel to 'The Heat'

It looks like a sequel to Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock's hit buddy cop comedy The Heat may not be happening. Bullock tells EW:

I know they say never say never, but right now, I can’t imagine it. I don’t want to ruin what Melissa and I had. If a miracle happens where [a script] shows up that really and truly outdid the first and provided an experience that was better than the first one, then I would look at it. But I’m not there.

The first movie is a big hit, having grossed $130 million so far, but Bullock referenced past sequels she's done like Miss Congeniality [...]

Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock's 'The Heat' Will Now Be a Big-Time Summer Release

The Melissa McCarthy-Sandra Bullock police comedy The Heat was supposed to be released April 5th, but the studio has moved the movie's premiere date to June 28th, according to Collider. This means the studio was likely really impressed with the film and wants to put it up during the competitive but lucrative summer movie season. The Heat, which also stars Tony Hale, Demian Bechir, Kaitlin Olson, Taran Killam, and Michael Rappaport, will now be facing off with big summer movies Kick-Ass 2 and White House Down. This is the first movie directed by Paul Feig since Bridesmaids, and the studio quickly locked him down to a first-look deal [...]

Tony Hale's Joining the Cast of Paul Feig's Melissa McCarthy-Sandra Bullock Cop Film

Your future favorite movie of a summer just keeps on getting better. Tony Hale has signed on to Paul Feig's still untitled buddy cop film written by Parks & Recreation's Kate Dippold and starring Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock. McCarthy will be arresting Hale for soliciting a prostitute, which sounds like a hilarious scene in which McCarthy dresses like a streetwalker. Soliciting a prostitute is technically illegal but soliciting a prostitute with a hook for a hand should be super illegal.

Talking to Katie Dippold About 'The Heat', Female Camaraderie, and Lots of Swearing

A UCB improviser and former Parks and Rec staff writer, Katie Dippold is behind one of this year's most highly anticipated summer comedy blockbusters. The Heat, which opens Friday and was directed by Freaks and Geeks and Bridesmaids director Paul Feig, stars Sandra Bullock as a federal agent and Melissa McCarthy as a Boston cop who are forced to team up to track down a drug dealer. I spoke with Katie at a press junket for the film, where we talked about female friendships in films and how Chris Gethard ended up playing himself in the movie.

How are you feeling? This is a lot of hype for your first film.

I'm excited. I'm nervous [...]

The Red-Band Trailer for 'The Heat': Now With 500% More Melissa McCarthy Profanity

Here's the new red-band trailer for The Heat, the Paul Feig-directed action comedy starring Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock as a pair of mismatched partners taking on a criminal organization of some sort (I assume — the bad guys aren't all that well defined in the trailers). It's all pretty standard buddy cop stuff, but the casting in this looks inspired and like it'll elevate it above standard genre expectations. Look for it, wonderfully foul-mouthed McCarthy and all, in theaters on April 5th.

Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock to Play Buddies and Cops

This is an exciting one. Sandra Bullock is set to play an uptight, grizzled FBI agent and Melissa McCarthy a zany Boston cop in a still untitled comedy. Parks & Recreation writer Kate Dippold wrote the script and Paul Fieg is signed on to direct. That is a mighty stacked line-up, with everyone perfectly fit for their roles. No word yet on when the film is supposed to be released but, whenever it is, it will surely be our favorite of that month or year or lifetime.
