Angela Bassett Declares “War”

Angela Bassett has joined McG’s comedy-thriller “This Means War” at 20th Century Fox according to Variety.

The story follows two best friends and veteran spies (Chris Pine, Tom Hardy) who fall for the same woman (Reese Witherspoon) who has moved into their spare room. They end up fighting for her affections using their black-ops warfare tactics, a fight which literally demolishes much of New York City along the way.

Bassett will play the boss to both spies who has dedicated her entire life to the spy business and has no life outside the CIA.

Timothy Dowling and Burr Steers penned the script while Will Smith, Simon Kinberg, Robert Simonds and James Lassiter are producing. Filming is currently underway in New York City.
