Melissa McCarthy, Jason Statham, & Rose Byrne Get Their 'Spy' On at SXSW!

“I’ve always wanted to direct a spy movie but I realized no one is ever going to let me direct a Bond movie,” Paul told the audience at the post-screening Q&A (via Variety). “And I loved working with these funny women, so I thought I’d write something with a woman lead.”

Spy hits theaters everywhere on June 5!

FYI: Rose is wearing a Thakoon dress, Christian Louboutin shoes, and Cartier jewelry.
