Melissa McCarthy is no stranger to enjoying summer comedy film success with Bridesmaids and The Heat already under her belt. Now she is back with new film Spy, which is the comedy movie that I am really looking forward to.



Spy marks the return of Paul Feig to the director's chair for the first time since The Heat and it will be the third time that he has teamed up with McCarthy - Bridesmaids and The heat being their first two movies together.

As well as being in the director's chair, Feig has also penned the screenplay for Spy and it will be the first time that he has directed his own screenplay since I Am David back in 2003.

McCarthy is set to take on the central role of Susan Cooper, a CIA analyst who finds herself in the field for the first time. She is surrounded by an all-star cast, as Jude Law, Jason Statham, and Rose Byrne are just some of the names on a great comedy cast list.

Statham is not an actor that we associate with the comedy genre, but Feig revealed earlier this year that he is an actor that he has been keen to work with for some time. Feig also revealed that Statham steals just about every scene that we see him in - I really cannot wait to see him in action and if he lives up to all of this hype from the filmmaker.

Susan Cooper (McCarthy) is an unassuming, deskbound CIA analyst, and the unsung hero behind the Agency's most dangerous missions.

But when her partner (Law) falls off the grid and another top agent (Statham) is compromised, she volunteers to go deep undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent a global disaster.

McCarthy is one of the biggest names in comedy at the moment, but Spy is set to be the one and only movie that we will be seeing her star in this year.

However, she is a woman who is in high demand as she is lending her voice to B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations and is currently working on Michelle Darnell. She is also going to lead the cast in Ghostbusters, which will see her work with Feig once again.

Spy really does look like it is going to be laugh out loud funny and I can't wait to see McCarthy back in action - and it looks like top form - this summer.

Spy is released 5th June
