“Chuck” and “Shazam” star Zachary Levi is in negotiations to star in the Jeff Tomsic-directed action comedy “Spy Guys” for New Line Cinema.
Levi will play a super spy in the vein of Jason Bourne and Ethan Hunt who gets in a jam on an impossible mission and can only rely on the help of his moronic college friends who happen to be with him, to work it out.
Adam Sztykiel (“Rampage,” “Due Date”) penned the script for the project which has been put on the fast track and aims to complete shooting before Levi reprises his titular role in the “Shazam!” sequel.
John Rickard and the Lonely Island team of Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer will produce. Tomsic made his directorial debut on “Tag” following helming episodes of “Broad City”.
