For action movie veteran Bautista, My Spy’s big set pieces and stunts were all in a day’s work. But for Chloe Coleman, they provided new and wondrous experiences.

Brought to India by PVR Pictures, My Spy is all ready to release on 10th January 2020.

This was the first time I got to do my own stunts, including jumping out of a [grounded] airplane, and it was a lot of fun,” Chloe Coleman recalls. “A high point were the explosions and running during the film’s climax – “definitely my favorite scenes to film,” she adds.

But there was one “stunt” that Chloe mastered much more quickly than her co-star: an ice-skating sequence where JJ reluctantly accompanies Chloe on a sojourn to a local rink.

Unfortunately, for Dave Bautista, the Toronto location had yet to undergo winter’s worst, and the water had not completely frozen. The combination of an extra-slippery surface and Bautista’s inexperience with skating … well, it wasn’t pretty.

“I’m a horrible ice skater,” Dave confesses. Adds Peter Segal, director of the film with a laugh: “Yeah, it was like 280 pounds of Brian Boitano on ice!”

Equally daunting for Dave Bautista was a dance scene featuring the actor and Fitz-Henley, the culmination of JJ and Kate’s first date. But according to Fitz-Henley, the actor, a natural athlete, acquitted himself well, as JJ fully commits to enjoying himself on the dance floor.

“The scene brings out a side of JJ that Kate didn’t expect to see – and definitely brings out a side of Dave that audiences won’t expect to see,” Fitz Henley says.
