Ed Brown writes for Bleeding Cool

Paul Feig, creator of Freaks and Geeks and director of Bridesmaids, will follow up his Sandra-Bullock and Melissa McCarthy cop-com The Heat with the first instalment of – hopefully – a new spy franchise.

According to The WrapSusan Cooper will take a more realistic approach than other films in the sub-genre, such as Johnny English and Austin Powers. The new script was reportedly inspired specifically by 2006’s Casino Royale. So does that mean we can expect some sort of grit in with the comedy? I’d be interested to see how that would work.

Feig is currently in the process of finding the female lead. I can definitely support his streak of female-led comedies.

I’m sure a lot of excitement for this project will guarded until after we see The Heat, out in the US on June 28 and in the UK on July 31.
