Comedy Gold: Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock have signed on to star in an untitled buddy cop film directed by Paul Feig, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Look for it in theaters sometime next year.
McCarthy — who stars in the hit CBS comedy Mike and Molly — snatched an Oscar nomination for her role in the box office hit Bridesmaids. Bullock, of course, was the 2010 Best Actress winner following the success of her film The Blind Side. The Fox feature reunites McCarthy with Feig, the lensman behind Bridesmaids.
The movie will follow Bullock as an FBI agent who is forced to work with McCarthy, an “unconventional” Boston police officer.
A summer shoot is in the works.
