Paul Feig has added "Ronna & Beverly" writer-performers Jessica Chaffin and Jamie Denbo ("Entourage," "Curb Your Enthusiasm") to his upcoming buddy cop comedy with Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy. The film, listed as "The Heat" on IMDb, follows an uptight star FBI agent (Bullock, reprising something akin to her "Miss Congeniality" character) with a tough Boston cop (McCarthy). They have to learn to like and trust each other in order to take down a drug lord. The film is currently shooting in Boston, with a script by Katie Dippold. The story sounds familliar, of course, but teaming Bullock and McCarthy sounds like a genius idea. Feig surely hopes to match the success of his "Bridesmaids." Chat show "Ronna & Beverly" will debut on UK television this September; Feig has been involved with it since it began as a skit at Los Angeles' Ucb Theater, and is executive producing their new chat show. »
