WSJ has shared an alternate scene from “Spy” included on the upcoming Blu-ray and it is by far one of the most brilliant moments. In the scene, Jason Statham and Allison Janney fight over who will go on the mission to hunt down De Luca (played by Bobby Cannavale). In the original version, Statham wants to use the “Face-Off” machine to go undercover undetected but in this new clip he suggests a different idea: a letter with a picture of him delivered by an angry bird.
“Anytime Statham was involved it became mayhem,” director Paul Feig said. “And that would get us writing crazier and crazier jokes for him. I’d be laughing so hard, I’d be crying behind the monitor. There were some runs that were so ridiculous, we couldn’t even put them in the movie.”
