EXCLUSIVE: Director Paul Feig Talks The Heat
Oscar Winner Sandra Bullock and Oscar Nominee Melissa McCarthy are on fire in the outrageously funny comedy The Heat. Uptight FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn and foul-mouthed Boston cop Shannon Mullins couldn't be more incompatible. But when they join forces to bring down a ruthless drug lord, they become the last thing anyone expected...buddies. The Heat exploded at the box office with over $218 million worldwide, and now its coming home on Blu-ray and DVD, available October 15. To celebrate this release, we caught up with director Paul Feig. Watch our exclusive interview as he talks about his own career as an actor, the differences between the rated and unrated cuts, and how he managed to get Kaitlin Olson in for a cameo despite the It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia having just given birth.
Before The Heat, Paul Feig's had big screen success with another female-driven comedy, Bridesmaids, also starring Melissa McCarthy. Writer/producer/director/actor Paul Feig has worn many hats throughout his enduring showbiz career.
