With a $229 million international box office haul, Paul Feig's modestly budgeted comedy 'The Heat' isn't just one of the biggest hits of 2013, it's the biggest film yet for stars Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy. Unfortunately, Sandra Bullock said 'The Heat 2' isn't going to happen, but we may get something else entirely. Are you ready for a spin-off featuring two of the film's supporting characters?
The Heat 2
'The Heat' was one of this summer's surprise hits making over $200 million worldwide. Almost immediately a writer was hired to write 'The Heat 2' and a sequel was in motion, but Fox forgot one important thing: asking Sandra Bullock if she had interest in returning. The Oscar-winning actress flatly told The Wrap at the 'Gravity' premiere in Los Angeles, "I’m not doing a sequel to 'The Heat.'"
We've been hearing a lot of news about sequels recently (including '21 Jump Street 2' and 'Fast and Furious 7'), but those have been for hit films or are continuing a franchise that has already proved successful enough to rush. Today it's been announced that studios are working on sequels for 'The Heat' and 'Ride Along,' two films that haven't even hit theaters yet.
