“The Heat shows that women can do R-rated comedy” said Sandra Bullock about her latest film in an interview with Digital Spy.
"The nice thing about Paul (Feig) is that he was unafraid to use women to sell the comedy," Bullock said when asked about working with the director.
Following the success of Bridesmaids Feig has released The Heat which stars Bullock as uptight FBI agent Sarah Ashburn and Melissa McCarthy as the street-wise Boston cop Sharon Mullins who are forced to work together.
During the interview, Bullock also spoke about the buddy-cop genre, which is predominantly a male genre, saying,’ It is a boy’s genre, only, because no one had ever tried it the right way with the ladies.’
Parks and Recreation writer and producer Katie Dippold wrote The Heat. Demián Bichir, Dan Bakkedahl, Michael Rapaport and Marlon Wayans are among the supporting cast.
The Heat is released in the UK tomorrow (July 31st).
