"Bridesmaids" director Feig is currently searching for a leading lady to star in "Susan Cooper," which will be a realistic comedy about a female James Bond, rather than a parody along the lines of "Get Smart" or "Johnny English." ...Feig wrote the script and will produce the movie through his Feigco Entertainment banner,Well, that sounds vaguely promising.
..."Susan Cooper" was inspired by the reintroduction of James Bond in 2006's "Casino Royale," which Feig recently told Variety ranks among his favorite movies.
Feig has publicly lamented the lack of female-driven projects in Hollywood, particularly after the surprise success of Universal's hit comedy "Bridesmaids," which grossed $288 million worldwide.
The vast majority of female characters in Feig's projects are white, with Maya Rudolph in Bridesmaids being a notable exception, so I hope Feig will consider women of color for the role of Susan Cooper. I may have to start a campaign for Rosario Dawson right now.
