Twentieth Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment are teaming up for a comedy feature film currently being called "Untitled Female Buddy Cop Movie". Shooting will take place in the Boston, Massachusetts area from July 5 through September 5, 2012. The extras casting director is holding an open casting call for people who are interested in working as paid background performers on the film. At this time, only non-union extras 18 years of age and older are being sought.

The film stars Academy Award winner Sandra Bullock as a high-strung FBI agent, and Academy Award nominee Melissa McCarthy as an unconventional Boston cop. The two must team up and work together to take down a Russian gangster. Bullock recently wrapped filming on the Warner Bros. Pictures film "Gravity" with George Clooney, while McCarthy only has a five-week window to complete shooting due to her commitment to the Warner Brothers Television comedy sitcom "Mike & Molly".

Four-time Primetime Emmy Award nominated filmmaker Paul Feig will direct from a screenplay written by Katie Dippold. Feig directed Melissa McCarthy in the super-successful Academy Award nominated film "Bridesmaids", and will direct Academy Award winner Colin Firth in The Weinstein Company's "Untouchable" - a remake of the French smash hit and award-winning film "The Intouchables". Katie Dippold is also a television producer and actor who is co-producer and series writer on the NBC comedy "Parks and Recreation".

"Untitled Female Buddy Cop Movie" will be produced by Peter Chernin, Dylan Clark, and Jenno Topping of Chernin Entertainment. The company's first feature film "Rise of The Planet of The Apes" grossed more than $480 million worldwide at the box office. Their most recent film is Universal Pictures' "Oblivion" starring Tom Cruise, set to be released on April 26, 2013. Director Paul Feig will also produce.

"Untitled Female Buddy Cop Movie" is scheduled to hit theaters on April 5, 2013.
