Paul Feig is planning to make a spin-off of his Sandra Bullock film The Heat.

The director was at the reins of the comedy earlier this year, which starred Sandra and Bridemaids actress Melissa McCarthy as mismatched detectives.

And now he is set to make a spin-off about the characters Beth and Gina, reported Deadline.

Beth and Gina were played by Jamie Denbo and Jessica Chaffin in the film, and were part of Melissa's character's family.

Paul said: "Jamie and Jessica are two of the funniest people on this planet. They took small roles in The Heat and turned them into characters worthy of their own movie.

"I can't wait to unleash Beth and Gina on the world. Run for your lives."
