NY Premiere of The HeatAP




When "The Heat" proved an unexpected smash over the summer, amassing over $200 million worldwide, plans were immediately set in motion for a sequel. Director Paul Feig tentatively agreed to return and screenwriter Kate Dippold was commissioned to work on a script, hopefully one that was slightly tighter than the somewhat ramshackle original. But one holdout has always been Sandra Bullock, whose chemistry with costar Melissa McCarthy was a big reason for the movie's success.

Well, it seems like even those faint glimmers of hope can be extinguished: she's not doing it. Bullock flatly told The Wrap at a screening of "Gravity," "I'm not doing a sequel to 'The Heat.'" The reason? "I've done two sequels. They were horrible." Well, it's hard to argue with her reasoning.

The two sequels Bullock is referring to, "Speed 2: Cruise Control" and "Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous," are only noteworthy for having two of the most cringe-worthy subtitles and, yes, being totally awful. (Oddly, Bullock's next film, next summer's "The Minions," is an animated sequel to "Despicable Me." Or maybe it's a spin-off. To Bullock, there's clearly a huge distinction.)

But, if you loved that Bullock/McCarthy magic, they might still reteam. "What Melissa and I had was beautiful," the star said. "We might do another film together." Squeeeeeeeeeee!

Bullock's "Gravity" is one of the few films this year that can be definitively described as a "must-see", while McCarthy will reteam with Feig for "Susan Cooper," a female spy comedy that sounds really cool.
