Kevin James set for action comedy True Memoirs Of An International Assassin

05.06.2015

Despite PAUL BLART: MALL COP 2 bringing in substantially less than the first film, Kevin James will continue to get leading roles in major studio projects that play on his heavyset man-child shtick that doesn't seem to entertain anyone. Now, a screenplay on the prestigious Black List will become a star vehicle for James and will be directed by KICK-ASS 2's Jeff Wadlow.

Deadline reports that Kevin James will play the lead role in THE TRUE MEMOIRS OF AN INTERNATIONAL ASSASSIN. Lest you think this will be very different from PAUL BLART, I should warn you it comes from the same producers. Here's the synopsis.

James will put away the Segway and play a mild-mannered accountant and would-be author who gets mistaken for a killer-for-hire when his fictional novel about an international assassin is published as a true story. He heads to Belize to escape his sudden celebrity, but gets entangled in an assassination plot. Thrown into a world of real danger, he must find a way to channel his lead character Colt Rodgers and save the day.

The producers claim the film will show us a badass side of Kevin James we have never seen before. While I find that hard to believe, nowhere is the film described as a comedy or an action film which leads me to think it is going to be the same style as PAUL BLART. But, if Wadlow brings his same style used in KICK-ASS 2 to the movie, there is a slight chance this could end up being an interesting project. A very slight chance.

Fuck this guy.

Kevin James is one of the few people that I wish all the misfortune in the world upon. Guy is a dick that thinks he's the greatest by pandering to the lowest common denominator.

Who knows, maybe it will end up being a really decent comedy. I doubt it, but who knows?

I like Kevin James on King of Queens, so I have hope he can make me laugh again. I'll reserve judgment until I see a trailer.

Who even goes to see his movies, his family can't be big enough for the studio to make a profit. Seriously, our society is in a serious decline if this is considered entertainment.

So, let me get this straight . . .

. . . the guy in the movie is mistaken for the character in his book, because the character in the book is FAT, CLUMSY AND UGLY too?

Hasn't the whole [link] person acting as a spy type comedy run it's course at this point? There's probably no premise more stale in comedy at this point.
