His fans have been clamouring for him to be the next James Bond ever since Crazy Ruch Asians.

From the real-life person who inspired Michelle Yeoh’s character to Feig's take on the 'Die Hard' debate.
The new song is “amazing” Feig tells Yahoo, and will run in its entirety at the very end of the film.
The director reckons that he was surprised by the anger that the all-female version caused among fans of the original.
Paul Feig and Melissa McCarthy were laying the groundwork for Spy when the filmmaker directed the actress as a rough-and-tumble Boston cop in the 2013 summer hit The Heat. In the new espionage action-comedy now in theaters, McCarthy has graduated to full-blown fighting machine as a CIA-trained desk jockey who finally gets her chance to hit the field. The character is one of several of Spy’s sly against-type portayals.
Paul Feig first made his mark on TV with Freaks and Geeks, the cult favorite about a bunch of social rejects on an impossible adventure: high school. Now, after nearly 20 years, a series of hit movies, and executive-producing credits on award-winning series like The Office and Nurse Jackie, Feig has created another show about lovable losers on a seemingly hopeless mission. “I am a big sci-fi fan and I’ve always wanted to do a sci-fi show, but I do comedy,” Feig tells Yahoo TV.
“Honestly, when it was first brought to me and they asked ‘Can you make a movie out of this?’ I thought the same thing, like ‘What the f—- do you do with that?’”
The social media backlash against word that Paul Feig would be directing an all-female version of Ghostbusters was so intense that the filmmaker briefly considered bailing on the reboot. “In the weeks after the announcement about the movie, I was so inundated with hate, that I almost went, ‘Maybe I should just not do this, maybe this is a bad idea.’ Then you go, ‘Wait, think about,’” Feig told Yahoo at the SXSW Festival, where he’s promoting his new comedy Spy (the writer-director also stopped by our headquarters for a Q&A about his Yahoo Screen original series Other Space).
