But JJ finds himself at the mercy of a 9-year-old girl, Sophie. As she discovered hidden cameras in her apartment, Sophie convinces JJ ( My Spy lead role, Dave Bautista) to teach her to become A Spy.
My Spy is directed by Peter Segal and written by Jon and Erich Hoeber. It is originally the project of STX Entertainment but it was reported that MWM Studios had joined the film as an additional production company.
STX Entertainment is a relatively new company, founded in 2014, has struggled to gain a foothold in Hollywood up to this point. It hasn’t been all bad news, of course; since they started, they’ve released such acclaimed films as The Gift, The Edge of Seventeen and Molly’s Game, and have a potential contender in this year’s awards season thanks to September’s Hustlers.
Footage from the project played well to movie theater owners at CinemaCon in April and they drew comparisons to Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Kindergarten Cop in which he starred as a detective, disguised as a Teacher.
My Spy release date was initially set to August 23, 2019, but it was pulled from STX Entertainment‘s release schedule in July 2019. My Spy release date is March 13, 2020.
My Spy‘s running time is 1 hr 42 min.
