Janssen to Spy With Murphy, Wilson

Famke Janssen, who recently dropped out of a role in Men in Black 2, has lined up a new project.

The leggy X-Men actress will star opposite Eddie Murphy and Owen Wilson in the action-comedy I Spy, a big-screen version of the 1960s TV series that starred Bill Cosby and Robert Culp.

Janssen, who got her big break as Russian femme fatale Xenia Onatopp in the 1995 James Bond film GoldenEye, will next be seen in the Michael Douglas thriller Don't Say a Word.

Production on I Spy will begin mid-September in Budapest, Hungary, according to Variety. Betty Thomas (28 Days) will direct.
