Amazon Studios has scooped up the rights to stream the movie My Spy, the company announced today. The acquisition makes the David Bautista action comedy the first film intended for a 2020 theatrical release that will instead debut on a subscription streaming service after its premiere was canceled in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

My Spy follows Baustista as JJ, an undercover CIA operative who finds himself having to work alongside Sophie, a precocious 9-year-old who has discovered JJ’s identity and has requested he teach her to become a spy herself.
