Jason Statham officially on for Susan Cooper

We first reported on the possibility of Jason Statham starring alongside Melissa McCarthy in the action\comedy Susan Cooper back in October. Now we can make it official.

Jason Statham is starring alongside Melissa McCarthy in the action/comedy Susan Cooper. There. You happy?

All kidding aside, I think this is a good move for the man of action fans call The Stath. Aside from The Expendables movies, Statham's career is ready to go the Steven Seagal and Van Damme route, as in nowhere, and he's better than that. Between this and Fast and Furious 7, Statham is guaranteed the spotlight for a while to come.

Susan Cooper is written and directed by Paul Feig, who made Bridesmaids and The Heat. I've seen neither, but both movies were huge at the box office, so Feig knows what he's doing.

The flick follows the adventures of an unlikely spy, Susan Cooper (McCarthy). Statham plays a spy McCarthy teams up with.

Susan Cooper opens in May 2015, just a month after Fast 7. 2015 is poised to be a good year for Statham.
