Sandra Bullock, who co-stars with Melissa McCarthy in "The Heat,"a film based in Boston, said featuring the comedy at a special screening in the besieged city would be a "great idea," helping Bostonians cope with the bombings Monday that left three dead and many others injured.

"The Heat” Director Paul Feig, who also directed "Braidsmaids," this week said at CinemaCon that he is arranging for an advanced screening of the new good cop-bad cop comedy in the beleaguered city to bring comic relief to embattled Bostonians. The movie is scheduled to hit theaters June 28.

"The movie is such a love letter to Boston," Feig said. "A lot of our cast are Boston people, either born or raised. So we really would like to support that city. I love that city."

Bullock, who had no idea of Feig's proposal, said she whole-heartedly agrees.

“That’s a great idea. It’s news, but that’s a really great idea,” Sandra told Access Hollywood.

She also said assuredly that Boston will bounce back.

“That city is made up of amazing, strong, loyal, kind, giving people and you saw that once everything happened,” she said. “You saw the amount of people that rushed into the danger and just helped everyone. All tragedies — it brings out the best in people and you just see what a great, great, great place Boston is.”

Bullock stars as a stiff, clean-cut FBI agent who must work with and McCarthy, who plays a testy Boston cop who plays by her own rules, to take down a drug lord. Neither character has ever partner on a case before and must negotiate their opposite personalities.

During the filming, Feig said local agents and officers gave filmmakers "so much help."

"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."
