Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy will hold a special screening of their new comedy The Heat, which was filmed in Boston with law-enforcement support, for FBI agents and police, CNN reports.
The screening idea is in its early stages, and no date has been set, director Paul Feig said. It comes after this week’s bombing at the Boston Marathon, which killed three and injured more than 170 people. “The agents and police who are now busy with the bombing investigation gave the filmmakers so much help," Feig told CNN. "They are some of the finest people I've ever worked with," he said. "Boston is in good hands if they have to go through something like this. They are in the best hands possible." Added Bullock: "It's been an [amazingly] tight-knit community before this happened, and it just bonded a community even more. I don't think a screening would ever be enough, feel like it's enough to do for them."
