Mila Kunis & Kate McKinnon in talks to star in The Spy Who Dumped Me

Kate McKinnon The Spy Who Dumped Me Mila Kunis

After walking away victorious from a bidding war for the Susanna Fogel scripted THE SPY WHO DUMPED ME, Lionsgate is now looking at Mila Kunis (BAD MOMS) and Kate McKinnon (GHOSTBUSTERS) to star in the film.

Per Deadline, Lionsgate is currently in talks with both Kunis and McKinnon to take on the lead roles in THE SPY WHO DUMPED ME, an action-comedy which follows a woman, who, after being dumped, realizes that her ex-boyfriend is a spy. After he bites the dust, the two best friends team up in order to complete his mission and unwittingly become entangled in an international conspiracy. Production on THE SPY WHO DUMPED ME is expected to kick off this summer with Susanna Fogel (LIFE PARTNERS) also stepping into the director's chair. There are more than a few decent spy-based comedies out there, and Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon certainly have the comedic chops to hopefully add THE SPY WHO DUMPED ME to that list. Finger's crossed.

Both actresses have several projects on the horizon, with Kate McKinnon soon to be seen alongside Scarlett Johansson, Zoe Kravitz, Jillian Bell and Ilana Glazer in ROUGH NIGHT, where, after a wild bachelorette weekend in Miami, the group's hard partying takes a hilariously dark turn when they accidentally kill a male stripper. As you do. ROUGH NIGHT will hit theaters on June 16, 2017.

As for Mila Kunis, she'll be returning for a sequel to BAD MOMS along with Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn. Titled A BAD MOMS CHRISTMAS, the sequel will find the under-appreciated and over-burdened sisterhood dealing with the stresses of the most wonderful time of year as their own mothers visit for the holidays. A BAD MOMS CHRISTMAS is set for a November 3, 2017 release.
