Jude Law to star in Susan Cooper

Jude Law looks set to star in spy comedy Susan Cooper.

The Grand Budapest Hotel star is in final negotiations about joining fellow Brit Jason Statham in the film, reported The Wrap.

Actresses Melissa McCarthy and Rose Byrne are also on board, with Melissa in the title role as a James Bond-style female agent.

Jude's role isn't clear as little is known about the plot of the movie.

Susan Cooper is being directed by Paul Feig, who Melissa worked with on Bridesmaids and The Heat.

The film is being developed as a potential franchise, which suggests that Jude could return in future films.
