Amazon Studios has bought the rights to STX’s Dave Bautista-led family comedy “My Spy” for exclusive streaming on Amazon Prime in the U.S. and some foreign markets.
In “My Spy,” Bautista finds himself forced to teach spycraft to a precocious 9-year-old girl (Chloe Coleman). Bautista is ordered to go undercover and surveil a family, but the daughter foils the plan by discovering the hidden cameras. She then blackmails him into teaching her how to be a spy.
With U.S. movie theaters not expected to open for several more months, and studios vacating most release dates until the mid-summer at the earliest, the $18 million-budgeted film will now premiere directly on the service. No streaming date has been set yet.
