When I first saw the trailer for ‘The Heat’ I rolled my eyes, shook my head and whispered to the friend next to me in the theater “Dud alert.” Should I go ahead and eat my words now? The marketing success for this film could almost solely be attributed to the things going on behind the scenes. This movie was slated to be released earlier this year but due to such positive test screenings it was, instead of Identity Thief (Ugh), moved to summer. Now ‘new-to-the-scene (At least in the feature length world) writer Katie Dippold has signed on to write the second film BEFORE THE FIRST ONE COMES OUT.
Katie broke onto the scene writing for MAD TV then proceeded to go on to write seven episodes of Parks and Rec. I went from knowing with absolute certainty I would be passing on this film to feeling like I have to see it in order to see what all the buzz is about. We may just have ourselves a new writer to keep a close eye on, folks.
God, I hate Bullock though….
