The Heat director Paul Feig talks Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy

Director Paul Feig scored a mega-hit with Bridesmaids back in 2011. Now he brings us The Heat, another comedy where, like Bridesmaids, the reins are handed over to the women. Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy are the stars playing mismatched law officials in this outrageous laugh-riot.

To mark the film's release, we've brought you an interview with Feig in which he discusses working with the actresses and how their characters differ from one another. Sounds like he's cornering the niche in female-centric comedy - keep it up Paul!

The Heat is out on Friday. Book your tickets here. And tell us if you think they should be more starring roles for women, especially in the male-oriented summer months.
