It looks like our action hero Jason Statham is interested in joining “Gilmore Girls” actress Melissa McCarthy in the Paul Feig-directed comedy “Susan Cooper.” According to Deadline, Jason Statham got together with the director and negotiations about his possible involvement with the project will begin soon. Melissa McCarthy will play an unlikely secret agent while our favorite Brit would play a spy on the same side, if he decides to be part of the film.
What do you think? We have to say this sounds REALLY great since Jason Statham has already proved his comedic talent in his breakthrough film “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” then “Snatch” and “Mean Machine.” So to see him star in a comedy for the first time opposite the adorable and super funny Melissa McCarthy (“Bridesmaids,” “The Heat”) would be nothing short of awesome. Please make this happen Hollywood.
