My Spy 2: Amazon Prime & STX Looking to Reunite Team for Sequel
According to Deadline, Amazon Prime and STX are hoping to reunite director Peter Segal and stars Dave Bautista and Chloe Coleman for a My Spy 2 sequel. The potential project is still in early stages and no deals are reportedly in place yet.
My Spy follows a hardened CIA operative (Bautista) who finds himself at the mercy of a precocious 9-year-old girl (Coleman), having been sent undercover to surveil her family.
The film stars Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy) as JJ Cena, Chloe Coleman (Big Little Lies) as Sophie Newtown, Kristen Schaal (BoJack Horseman) as Bobbi Ault, Ken Jeong (The Hangover film trilogy) as Kim Trang, and Parisa Fitz-Henley (Jessica Jones) as Kate Newtown.
Jon and Erich Hoeber penned the script for the film, which is directed by Peter Segal (Get Smart, Fifty First Dates). The Hoeber brothers’ screenwriting credits include the Red action-franchise and Battleship, as well as the science fiction adventure, The Meg, starring Jason Statham and Ruby Rose.
Bautista and Jonathan Meisner serve as producers on the film, and STXfilms’ SVP of production Drew Simon and director of development Kate Vorhoff oversaw production.
