Paul Feig, who directed Sanda Bullock's upcoming cop movie "The Heat", said he wanted a special screening of the film in Boston as a tribute to the city.

Access Hollywood reports, Bullock thinks the screening is a "really great idea" and is certain that despite the tragic events that took place in the city on Monday the people of Boston will bounce back from this.

"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."

"The Heat," which stars Sandra as an FBI agent and Melissa McCarthy as a tough Boston cop, was filmed in the city.

"It's a warm, tight-knit community," McCarthy said of Boston.

"The Heat" hits theaters on June 28, 2013.
