Paul Feig to helm Bullock/McCarthy comedy

Rob Corddry is in negotiations to join the cast of the untitled Sandra Bullock/Melissa McCarthy buddy cop comedy at Fox.

Paul Feig is on board to direct the pic about an FBI agent who teams up with a Boston cop to stop a Russian mobster.

Peter Chernin will produce through his Chernin Entertainment banner along with Dylan Clark and Jenno Topping.

Lee Eisenberg, Katie Dippold and Gene Stupnitsky penned the script. Production is set to start this summer.

Corddry has stayed busy with a handful of pics set to be released over the next year which include Summit’s “Warm Bodies,” Paramount’s “Pain and Gain” and Lionsgate’s “Rapturepalooza.”

The WME and Principato-Young repped Corddry can currently be seen in the Focus pic “Seeking a Friend For the End of the World.”
