In the beginning of March, director/writer Paul Feig officially announced the cast for his upcoming comedy “Susan Cooper” via his official Twitter.
Melissa McCarthy. Jason Statham. Rose Byrne. And now Jude Law. I'm in love with the cast of my new film & we haven't even started shooting!

What a terrific cast indeed! Jason Statham will play a spy alongside the main character Susan Cooper portrayed by Melissa McCarthy. The film’s IMDb page lists Budapest, Hungary as their filming location and the release date is scheduled for May 22, 2015 in the US and UK.
So when will they start filming? According to Paul Feig’s Twitter update from yesterday, in a week!
1 week from today we begin shooting my new movie w/Melissa McCarthy called Spy. Just felt like it'd be dramatic to type that. As you were.

JStatham.com Team: Now that could either mean they will start without Jason Statham or he has already filmed all his scenes for “Fast and Furious 7.” One way or another, we are super excited.
