Everyone’s favourite Cockney hardman, Jason Statham, is apparently set to star in Paul Feig’s latest comedy, Susan Cooper. Feig is responsible the cult television show Freaks and Geeks and more recently Bridesmaids and The Heat.
Statham is no stranger to comedy, with his breakthrough roll being in Guy Ritchie’s Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrells; but this role could see him delve into deeper into his comedic abilities. He will be teamed up with Melissa McCarthy, who plays the title character. Whether he will be cast in the usual hard as nails role in this spy film will be something we find out closer to the time, but for now it could be seen as a given that he will be playing a tough guy once again.
