His first comedy in years...
Deadline reports that Jason Statham is in talks for 20th Century Fox's Susan Cooper. Statham has met with director Paul Feig. The film would also star Melissa McCarthy, who worked with Feig on Bridesmaids and The Heat.
McCarthy will play a secret agent, and Statham would play a spy on the same team if he takes the role.
His next films include Homefront with James Franco and The Expendables 3. He's also starting work on Fast and Furious 7.
If he accepts, this will be Statham's first comedy since Crank: High Voltage in 2009.
