Spy (2015, D: Feig) S: McCarthy, Byrne, Statham, Law

Edit: Wanted to post a picture, but DVDTalk won't let me insert images from the-film-stage.com (without the hyphens, of course).

Director Paul Feig is ramping up development on a female spy movie titled "Susan Cooper" that he hopes will become a franchise for 20th Century Fox, TheWrap has learned.

"Bridesmaids" director Feig is currently searching for a leading lady to star in "Susan Cooper," which will be a realistic comedy about a female James Bond, rather than a parody along the lines of "Get Smart" or "Johnny English."

It's described by an individual familiar with the project as a two-hander in the vein of "The Heat" that lends itself to a possible franchise.

Feig wrote the script and will produce the movie through his Feigco Entertainment banner, which recently landed a first-look deal at Fox. Feigco's new executive VP Jessie Henderson will also be involved in a producing capacity. Fox exec Daria Cercek will oversee the project for the studio.

"Susan Cooper" was inspired by the reintroduction of James Bond in 2006's "Casino Royale," which Feig recently told Variety ranks among his favorite movies.

Feig has publicly lamented the lack of female-driven projects in Hollywood, particularly after the surprise success of Universal's hit comedy "Bridesmaids," which grossed $288 million worldwide. His production company is tasked with finding edgy R-rated comedies and other commercial properties in the vein of "Bridesmaids."

-----------------------

Jason Statham will take part in the Melissa McCarthy-led Susan Cooper, to be seen as “a badass whose quick exit is foiled when his jacket pocket gets caught on a door handle, pulling him back and knocking him out.”

Rose Byrne is also in.

I'm guessing she's not the lead.

I know people love or hate Melissa McCarthy, but I love her. I'll see this with my wife because she thinks she's funny too. Trailer looks good.

Not a big fan of her, but the rest of the cast sells me on it.

So, McCarthy is playing the exact same character from The Heat? Seems like such a waste of good talent. I would have been a lot more interested had someone like Anna Kendrick or Emma Stone played McCarthy's role but I guess Paul Feig is going to ride the McCarthy train until it crashes.

Looks good to me. But then I enjoyed both Bridesmaids and The Heat.

She's a pretty hot property right now, I'm sure they want to get every dime out of her that they can.

Not to be pedantic, but she seems to be the exact opposite. In that movie, she was street smart and tough. In this she's desk bound and timid.

Why Chev Chelios? Why?

This will be the first Statham flick I will not watch.

Yeah. This seems like an R-rated Get Smart.

By the way, the above artwork is original, so if anyone would like, I'd be happy to sign a copy.
