The Dave Bautista-led action-comedy “My Spy” has been pulled from its August 23rd release date with plans to move the family-centric tale to a Q1 2020 release.
Peter Segal (“Get Smart,” “The Longest Yard”) helms the project in which the “Guardians of the Galaxy” star plays a hardened CIA operative who finds himself at the mercy of a precocious 9-year-old girl, having been sent undercover to surveil her family.
STX Films is the distributor and has been trying to find its footing following some major executive departures and the bombing of its potential franchise launcher “UglyDolls” which has only grossed $20 million at the U.S. box office on a $45 million production budget.
In addition, there’s an understandable desire for more breathing room between this and the Bautista-led action comedy “Stuber” which opens this Friday. STX still has “Hustlers” and “21 Bridges” scheduled for the Fall.
