Exclusive SXSW Interview: Melissa McCarthy talks Spy and reveals she’s coming to Australia!


Earlier tonight, the upcoming Action-Comedy Spy, reuniting Melissa McCarthy and Australia’s Rose Byrne with Bridesmaids director Paul Feig, premiered at SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas. We were lucky enough to be on the red carpet at the screening, and briefly caught up with star Melissa McCarthy to talk about being an action star in the film, her favourite spy characters – plus she reveals she’ll be coming to Australia for what will presumably be the premiere of the film later in the year!

Spy is released on June 4th in Australia. Stay tuned for details about the Australian premiere.
