Rose Byrne plays baddie in espionage spoof Spy

AUSTRALIAN funny woman Rose Byrne plays the baddie in director Paul Feig's new comedy Spy.

She reunites with Bridesmaids director Feig and co-star Melissa McCarthy in the film, which sees a desk-bound CIA analyst go on a dangerous undercover mission.


Action film star Jason Statham also pokes fun at himself as a spy who brags about how he once "drove a car off a freeway on top of a train while I was on fire".

Spy hits cinemas in Australia on May 21.
