Despite the film grossing more than $130 million at the U.S. box-office since its release, Sandra Bullock says she’s in no hurry to get involved in a sequel to her recent cop comedy “The Heat”. Bullock tells EW:
“I know they say never say never, but right now, I can’t imagine it. I don’t want to ruin what Melissa and I had. If a miracle happens where [a script] shows up that really and truly outdid the first and provided an experience that was better than the first one, then I would look at it. But I’m not there.”
The critical and box-office failure of the two sequels she previously starred in – “Speed 2: Cruise Control” and “Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous” – have understandably made her wary of returning to the trough:
“If you look back on my illustrious sequel work, nothing has proven successful. A sequel is such a daunting thing, because you don’t want to lose the magic and the charm of the first one.”
“The Heat” director Paul Feig previously said the film’s screenwriter, Katie Dippold, is already working on a follow-up.
