Live Action Spy vs. Spy Blowing Up Soon In A Face Near You


If you’ve been missing the use of good old fashioned dynamite in modern action films, strap on your color-coordinated fedora for Ron Howard’s Spy Vs. Spy movie. John Kamps will write the live action film based on the long-running MAD Magazine comic strip, for what would basically have to be a “physical and highly visual action comedy with two spies going mano a mano in ruthless fashion.” I hope they keep the same creepy, manic energy of the original strips, though once you introduce the whole “talking” element, there’s no telling where they’ll go with it. I for one can see Stephen Colbert gleeful driving a tank down a city street; it would be nice if it could just be for a movie.
