'The Heat' Creative Team Reuniting for Action Comedy
The Hollywood Reporter -- The creative team behind this summer's action comedy The Heat are teaming up once again.
Director Paul Feig, writer Katie Dippold and producer Peter Chernin are colluding on another action comedy, with Chernin Entertainment plunking down $1 million from its discretionary fund to pick an untitled pitch from Dippold. Feig is attached to direct and also produce.
The logline is being kept under wraps.

The project is not set up at a studio, and while Chernin's shingle is based at Fox, it doesn't guarantee the film an automatic home there. Chernin, for example, produced Oblivion for Universal, for which Feig made the hit comedy Bridesmaids.
Heat is a buddy cop comedy starring Sandra Bullock as an uptight FBI agent paired with a Boston cop with an attitude played by Melissa McCarthy. The movie opens June 28 and is Feig's follow-up to Bridesmaids.
