I’ve been keen to take a look at Spy even since it was announced (although back then it was known as Susan Cooper), as initial reports had compared it to Casino Royale, but then it was revealed it was a comedy with Melissa McCarthy set to star.
However the first trailers – there’s a green band and a red band version below – suggest a comedic Casino Royale may not be too far off the mark.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Susan Cooper is an unassuming, deskbound CIA analyst, and the unsung hero behind the Agency’s most dangerous missions. But when her partner falls off the grid and another top agent is compromised, she volunteers to go deep undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent a global disaster.’
The great cast also includes Jude Law, Rose Byrne, Jason Statham, Allison Janney, Miranda Hart, 50 Cent and Bobby Cannavale.
The film’s due out May 22nd in the US and June 5th in the UK. Take a look at the trailers below.
