Stars sign up for action comedy.
Cameron Diaz (‘Gambit,’ ‘Bad Teacher’) and Benicio Del Toro (‘The Wolfman’) are attached to star in the “adrenaline-infused” action comedy ‘Agent: Century 21,’ the feature directorial debut of Adam Hashemi.
Written by Greg Brooker (‘Stuart Little’), the film revolves around Mary Kay Curly (Diaz) a recently divorced woman who cannot catch a break. Desperate to protect the two most important things in her life, her kids and her real estate agent job, Mary Kay agrees to take on an unpleasant task for her boss that accidentally gets her kidnapped and tossed into the center of a Mexican drug war. Armed with little more than her maternal instincts and a streak of pure dumb luck, Mary Kay must overcome incredible odds and outsmart the FBI, various underground crime lords and an international terrorist organization- in time to make it home for dinner.
‘Agent: Century 21’ is scheduled to begin shooting in September with Andrew Lazar of Mad Chance (‘Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind’) and David Greenblatt (‘Battle Los Angeles’) producing with Shane Black (‘Iron Man 3,’ ‘Kiss Kiss Bang Bang’) attached as executive producer.
