Before Spy was released into theaters, writer-director Paul Feig already knew he wanted to make a sequel, and what it would be about. The director had hoped to turn The Heat into a franchise–something Sandra Bullock wasn’t onboard with–but it looks like he may get his wish with a Spy 2. The director of this summer’s Ghostbusters reboot is adamant about making the sequel, which would involve more of Rick Ford (Jason Statham), the one and only man who can walk through fire, waterski blindfolded, and take up piano at a late age.

An adaptation of Steve Alten‘s Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror has been in the works for a long time now, but the budget, time and time again, has proved to be an issue. In 2007, millions of dollars were spent on Jan de Bont‘s (Speed) version of the project before New Line pulled the plug. Eli Roth recently ran into similar issues on Meg.
