Spy vs Spy Movie

Spy vs Spy movieDo you know Spy vs Spy? It was a comic strip featuring dialogue-free, violence-laden encounters between two rival, pointy-faced spies (one dressed in white, the other in black). The comic debuted in Mad Magazine in 1961. It then became a real franchise, with even its own animated series. Well, Warner Bros wants to develop a live-action movie adaptation of Spy vs Spy. According to Deadline Director Ron Howard is attached to the project. The script will be written by John Kamps, with David Koepp overseeing: the goal is to develop an action comedy film. There's no official release date yet.

Just to get a better idea what Spy vs Spy was about, here's a video:

"The Spy vs Spy movie will be a physical and highly visual action comedy in which two spies constantly battle each other in ruthless fashion."

A live-action adaptation of Spy vs Spy sounds like a real challenge, I mean it won't be easy to keep the film from being goofy... And beyond a good script they will also need the right cast! What actors would you cast for the two lead roles?

Anyway, more information about the movie Spy vs Spy as soon details emerge.
