Hey, everyone. "Moriarty" here with some Rumblings From The Lab.
As is befitting the subject matter, the communication we got here at the Labs tonight was terse, to the point:
Revolution Studios is going to announce a 75 million dollar Spy vs Spy flick on Friday. It is going to shoot in Prague, and has a script by Daniel Waters. Marcos Siega is rumored to direct. They are going to start casting as soon as the director is confirmed. Described as a high concept sleak comedy for all demographics, a four quadrant flick.
There’s enormous potential for a comedy in a SPY VS. SPY film, and one of the first things that I’m curious about is... how much dialogue is there? This was a strip about pure gags, setup and payoff, a repeated formula that was played with for years. Obviously, a film has to flesh it out somehow, but I hope there’s at least a nod to the purity of the original concept.
I’m working to confirm that this is true, so in the meantime consider this a rumor only.
