Dave Bautista is undercover in first My Spy trailer
Following the reveal of the poster for Dave Bautista (Blade Runner 2049)-led action comedy, STX Films has debuted the first trailer for the upcoming family film My Spy co-starring Chloe Coleman, which can be viewed in the player below!
The film 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. Bautista and Jonathan Meisner serve as producers on the film, and STXfilms’ SVP of production Drew Simon and director of development Kate Vorhoff will oversee production.
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.
My Spy is one of several projects STX is developing with Bautista, including the short-form action-comedy VR series from the company’s immersive content division, STXsurreal. The ambitious undertaking by STX to follow a custom-created model for their upcoming projects will help serve to create definitive roles for actors while also encouraging collaboration.
The movie is scheduled to hit theaters later this year.
