Sweary first trailer for Melissa McCarthy's spoof comedy Spy unveiled

Spy, the new secret agent spoof comedy from Bridesmaids director Paul Feig, which stars Melissa McCarthy and Jude Law, has been unveiled. Scroll down and watch it (Although it's very rude and peppered for bad language, so not suitable for work). 

The movie stars Alison Janney, Jason Statham, Rose Byrne and Miranda Hart as well as McCarthy and Law. It follows the adventures of Susan Cooper, an unassuming, deskbound CIA analyst, who is forced into active duty when literally everyone else is unavailable. 

Spy is due for release in the UK on June 5th. 

Earlier this week it was revealed that McCarthy is in early talks to star in Ghosbusters 3, which is also to be directed by Feig.  

It was announced earlier this year that Feig will be directing Ghostbusters 3 and he confirmed that the key cast will be female.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Feig is very keen to have McCarthy on board, but there are a number of scheduling issues to be overcome first. 

The report also states that both Rebel Wilson and Jessica Chastain, who had been linked with the film, are not in contention for a role, but BiRDMAN and The Amazing Spider-Man star Emma Stone is. Both Jillian Bell and Cecily Strong have also been linked with supporting role. 

Production on the new reboot is set to begin in the summer time, with currently no scheduled release date for Ghostbusters 3.
