Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy are teaming to headline an untitled new project from Bridesmaids director Paul Feig. The Hollywood Reporter has the news, saying that the comedy arrives from Katie Dippold (“Parks and Recreation”).
In the film, Bullock will play an FBI agent who forms an uneasy partnership with McCarthy’s Boston police officer.
Bullock previously played an FBI Agent in both 2000′s Miss Congeniality and its 2005 sequel Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous. She most recently starred in Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close and will soon headline Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity. McCarthy, meanwhile, was nominated for an Academy Award for her role in Bridesmaids, soon appears in Judd Apatow’s This is 40 and will star opposite Jason Bateman in Seth Gordon’s Identity Thief.
Production on the comedy will begin this summer, taking advantage of McCarthy’s “Mike and Molly” hiatus.
