Ron Howard Takes Spy vs. Spy

Howard, still attached to direct The Dark Tower, was also, just yesterday, named as a potential candidate for the Formula 1 biopic Rush. He most recently directed The Dilemma for Universal.

Koepp and Kamps have already teamed for Premium Rush (no relation to the potential Howard project) which Koepp will direct. That film, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Shannon and Jamie Chung, is set for released January 13, 2012.

First appearing in "MAD Magazine" #60, the popular Spy characters celebrate their 50th anniversary this year. Light on continuity, Spy vs. Spy has previously been adapted in an animated form, appearing on both "MADtv" and the more recent sketch comedy show "MAD."
