Despite it’s success at the box office this summer, and the amount of attention it brought the Boston area when it filmed here last summer, Sandra Bullock says that a sequel to the highly successful The Heat, costarring Melissa McCarthy, is very unlikely.
America’s sweetheart recently told Entertainment Weekly:
“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 smash hit comedy follows the story of Bullock as a straight-laced, uptight FBI agent, who is forced to pair-up with a foul-mouthed, plays by her instincts, long-time Boston cop in order to take down a dangerous and difficult to catch drug lord. The film was directed by Paul Feig, of Bridesmaids fame, and was written by screenwriter Katie Dippold. The film was shot primarily in Boston and Danvers, Massachusetts in the early summer months of 2012.
The film has grossed over $130 million at the box office this summer, during what has been a rather up and down movie season. Do you think they should do a sequel to The Heat?
