Ron Howard To Direct “Spy vs. Spy”

Warner Bros. has begun development of a live-action version of classic MAD magazine cartoon strip “Spy vs. Spy” says Deadline.

Antonio Prohias penned the strip over almost three decades in which the spies — one dressed in white and the other in black — were constantly battling each other. John Kamps has been tapped to pen the screenplay.

Ron Howard is attached to direct and produce through Imagine Entertainment alongside this regular cohort Brian Grazer. David Koepp will also produce.
