Dave Bautista and Director Peter Segal Are Developing a New Action-Comedy Called MY SPY
It looks like Dave Bautista is going to get to utilize his comedy skills in a new action-comedy called My Spy. The film is being directed by Peter Segal who is best known for the films Get Smart and Fifty First Dates.
The story for the film will follow a hardened CIA operative (Bautista) who finds himself at the mercy of a precocious 9-year-old girl, having been sent undercover to surveil her family.
Yeah, it's not a new film concept. We've seen this kind of story several times before, but this time Bautista is the leading man.
The movie was written by Jon and Erich Hoeber, who previously wrote the Red action franchise, Battleship, and the upcoming Jason Statham film The Meg.
There's a good team of people behind this movie, so even though it's not a new concept, it still could turn out to be a decent movie.
