Melissa McCarthy is going undercover in the trailer for Paul Feig’s new action comedy film Spy.
McCarthy’s character Susan Cooper is a meek and unassuming CIA analyst that puts herself forward for an undercover operation after the identities of the CIA’s other top agents are released. The film has gathered an impressive cast (Jude Law, Allison Janney, Rose Byrne, Miranda Hart, Jason Statham and even 50 Cent!) as McCarthy’s character goes from unsung hero to leading lady.
From what can be seen of the plot so far, Spy looks reminiscent of 2008’s Get Smart — but with dirtier jokes and more swearing when things go wrong. The biggest laugh, though, comes from Law’s character accidentally shooting someone when his hay fever sets off his allergies — and his gun.
Feig, McCarthy, and Byrne have all worked together previously on Bridesmaids.
Spy sneaks its way into theaters on May 22, 2015.
