Dave Bautista's new action-comedy will soon grace a theater near you. Here's everything we know so far about it!
Dave Bautista is clearly following in the footsteps of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson even though he wouldn't be the first to admit it. Bautista's latest movie "My Spy" looks a lot like some of Dwayne Johnson's early films like "The Tooth Fairy" and "The Game Plan". But does Dave Bautista have what it takes to contest with The Rock for the number one spot in Hollywood? At the moment, it doesn't seem likely but we can still enjoy some of his attempts. My Spy is an action-comedy directed by Peter Segal based on a script by Jon and Erich Hoeber. Below we compiled everything we know about Bautista's upcoming new film.
My Spy was initially supposed to have been released on August 23rd, 2019 but it was unexpectedly removed from STX Entertainment's release schedule in July 2019. It was then rescheduled and is now slated to be released on January 10th, 2020.
Filming began on October 15th, 2018 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and ended on November 30th, 2018. The film is currently in the post-production phase.
The film follows CIA operative, JJ, who got caught by a nine-year-old girl named Sophie, while spying on her family. In exchange for not blowing his cover, JJ agrees to teach Sophie how to be a spy. And with it comes a hilarious and action-packed adventure that we can't miss.
My Spy is expected to be the first in a series of films with the prospect of a franchise. However, it all depends on how well it performs in the box office.
Dave Bautista stars in the lead role as JJ with Chloe Coleman alongside him as Sophie. Other members of the cast include Kristen Schaal as Bobbi, Parisa Fitz-Henley as Kate, Ken Jeong as Kim, Devere Rogers as Carlos, Nikki Hahn, Jahi Di'Allo Winston and Olivia Dépatie as Selma.
Fortunately, STX has graced us with a wonderfully hilarious trailer to whet our appetites.
