Before The Heat hit theaters, we knew a sequel was already in the works. And after seeing the thing, it made sense, as the movie left things open ended. Then with it killing at the box office (it's currently over $130 million), a sequel seemed like a forgone conclusion. Not so fast, says Sandra Bullock. Talking with Entertainment Weekly, she said, "I know they say never say never, but right now, I can’t imagine it.” She explained that she doesn't want to ruin what she had with her co-star Melissa McCarthy. Bullock also pointed to the shortcomings over her "illustrious sequel work" in Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous and Speed 2: Cruise Control. However, all hope is not lost, she explained: "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.” Now, considering that Bullock must know a sequel script is already in the works, this might be just some gamesmanship on her part in order to boost her fee. It's hard to say. It's also hard to say whether a second Heat would really suffer a lot without her. It might be just as enjoyable to watch McCarthy make fun of any uptight lady for 90 minutes.
