Because duh.

"Susan Cooper," which is being developed as a potential franchise in the same tone as "The Heat," will be a realistic comedy about a female James Bond-type — rather than a spoof along the lines of "Spy Hard."

SNL Promo: Melissa McCarthy

We’re LIVE this week with Melissa McCarthy and Phoenix!!

Her husband Ben Falcone will co-direct based on the script the pair wrote together.

Ron Swanson is not pleased.

It’s not about romance or anything. I wanted it to be kind of groundbreaking in that way because I feel like so much stuff for women always has to have, “Okay, we have to have some nod to the ladies.” Nah, nobody is desperately trying to find a boyfriend, or is upset about this or that. It’s cool to play two women characters who are just great at what they do; them being women doesn’t affect anything really other than that these are two funny women.
