On Thursday, Prime Video announced Anna Faris, Craig Robinson and Flula Borg have joined the cast of director Pete Segal’s “My Spy” sequel, “My Spy: The Eternal City,” with Dave Bautista, Chloe Coleman, Kristen Schaal and Ken Jeong reprising their roles. The highly anticipated sequel follows Prime Video’s 2020 release of STXfilms’ “My Spy,” which was the third-most-watched SVOD released film that year according to ScreenEngine.
The action-comedy, which hails from Amazon Studios, will be produced by Chris Bender and Jake Weiner via Good Fear Content, joined by Dave Bautista and Jonathan Meisner via Dogbone Entertainment, Pete Segal, Robert Simonds and Gigi Pritzker via Madison Wells.
