Netflix Goes All in On Kevin James

Netflix has made some shrewd choices concerning which series produce. Most of them have turned into winners. House of CardsDaredevilOrange Is the New Black, and BoJack Horseman just to name a few. Meanwhile, their film department has been saying “f**k it” and buying films like Adam Sandler’s The Ridiculous Six and, now, the Kevin James starring film The True Memoirs of an International Assassin.

In the comedy, James plays an accountant mistaken for an assassin when a novel he’s writing is accidentally published as nonfiction, forcing him to flee to Belize. “Assassin” will be directed by Jeff Wadlow (“Kick Ass 2”) based on a Black List screenplay by Jeff Morris. Producers include Kevin Frakes, Todd Garner, Raja Collins and Justin Begnaud. Shooting begins in September.

Let me guess. He’s fat and affable. The only way this movie would be different from his others is if no cheeseburgers were involved.
