It looks like Melissa McCarthy and Paul Feig want to re-create the magic that led to the major success of Bridesmaids and The Heat.
The actress is in talks to star in Feig's next film, the spy comedy Susan Cooper, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.
The 20th Century Fox project, which Feig also wrote, will follow a female James Bond-type character.
Feig also will produce through his Feigco Entertainment banner with Jessie Henderson.
McCarthy recently finished shooting Tammy, a comedy she also produced and co-wrote with her husband, Ben Falcone.
