The man who directed you “Bridesmaids,” the bridesmaid who stole the show, and an Oscar winner who used to be the Queen of Hollywood Comedy are teaming up to bring you–wait for it–another Untitled Movie. Yes, no movie starts out with a title these days; I guess the one the writer chooses usually can’t be used because it hasn’t been focus grouped.
To clarify, we are talking about Paul Feig, Melissa McCarthy, and Sandra Bullock. The Hollywood Reporter says that they’re getting together to film a script by Kate Dippold, of “Parks and Recreation.” It’s about “the strained working relationship between an uptight FBI agent and an unconventional Boston cop.” Bullock is the FBI agent and McCarthy is the Boston cop. Sounds like “The Other Guys.” It also puts Bullock back in “Miss Congeniality” territory. Remember that one? Bullock played a straitlaced FBI agent who is forced to go undercover at a beauty pageant. Don’t worry if you haven’t seen it, I think it’s on ABC Family or a channel like that all the time.
They’re shooting this untitled film over the summer, to allow for McCarthy’s tight schedule due to her TV show “Mike & Molly,” as well as Feig’s other projects, one of which is an English language remake of the French megahit “Intouchables.”
Bullock will be seen in Alfonse Cuaron’s “Gravity” sometime in 2013 (they can’t seem to figure out when to release that). McCarthy will next be seen onscreen in “This is Forty,” and also is working on “Identity Thief” with Jason Bateman.
