Paul Feig‘s Spy will open the 41st Seattle International Film Festival on May 14, SIFF announced today.
Feig is slated to do a Q&A for the film with SIFF artistic director Carl Spence. Spy stars Melissa McCarthy as a quiet CIA analyst who is secretly its top agent, working with tough guys Jude Law and Jason Statham, who spoofs his own persona. The cast includes Allison Janney (The West Wing) as McCarthy’s boss, Rose Byrne (The Neighbors) as a Bulgarian assassin, Bobby Cannavale (Adult Beginners), Morena Baccarin (Homeland), Miranda Hart (Call the Midwife) and Curtis (50 Cent) Jackson. The 20th Century Fox film opens wide on June 5.
SIFF, which is 25 days long and claims 150,000 attendees a year, was founded in 1976 by Dan Ireland, the director who discovered Jessica Chastain, and Darryl MacDonald, now director of the Palm Springs International Film Festival.
