Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, The Heat) is pulling together an impressive cast for Spy. Now he’s got a couple of new addition, with Deadline reporting that Allison Janney and Morena Baccarin have signed up for the movie.
Melissa McCarthy has the central role, with the likes of Rose Byrne, Jason Statham, Jude Law, Bobby Cannavale, Miranda Hart, Nia Long, 50 Cent, Peter Serafinowicz, Nargis Fakhri, Bjorn Gustafsson and Verka Serduchka joining her.
Not too much info has been released about the comedy, other than that it’s about an unlikely female secret agent called Susan Cooper, played by McCarthy. Baccarin will be Karen Walker, although there’s no info on exactly how she fits into the plot, while Janney is Elaine Crocker, a CIA agent who crosses paths with McCarthy’s evidence.
The movie will reunite Janney and McCarthy, who star together in this summer’s Tammy.
