Former wrestler turned actor Dave Bautista has quickly become one of my favorite stars as of late with times in Final Score snd most recently Stuber which I found hilarious.
Now Bautista is headlining a new action-comedy where he takes on his scariest opponent yet in a t precious 9 year old in the new film My Spy. The film was set to hit theaters before the outbreak and now it has a second chance as Amazon Prime has grabbed it for the streaming service with a release date of June 26th.
My Spy follows JJ a hardened CIA operative (Dave Bautista) who has been demoted and finds himself at the mercy of a precocious 9-year-old girl, named Sophie (Chloe Coleman) where he has been sent undercover begrudgingly to surveil her family. When Sophie discovers hidden cameras in her apartment, she uses her tech savviness to locate where the surveillance operation is set. In exchange for not blowing JJ’s cover Sophie convinces him to spend time with her and teach her to be a spy. Despite his reluctance JJ finds he is no match for Sophie’s disarming charm and wit.
The film also stars Kristen Schaal, Parisa Fitz-Henley, Chloe Coleman, Ken Jeong and Devere Rogers with a script penned by Jon and Erich Hoeber.
The film actually had a limited release in Canada and overseas before the COVID-19 outbreak and has massed $4.4 million before cinemas shut down.
My Spy joins a host of films that have made its way to streaming services as studios are looking for alternative ways to make money as the future of theaters is still uncertain.
At any rate, My Spy will now reach a wider audience starting on June 26th!
