She’s also reprising her role as Moira MacTaggert in X-Men: Apocalypse and her role as Kelly Radner in Neighbors 2.

“A remarkably talented actress who has shown she can draw audiences in with both her comedic timing and remarkable dramatic talent, Rose Byrne is slated to take over the big screen this year with her upcoming role in Spy,” stated Mitch Neuhauser, Managing Director of CinemaCon. “We are thrilled that we will have the opportunity to showcase Byrne’s talent with a screening of her upcoming film Spy and honored to be able to present her with this year’s ‘CinemaCon Female Star of the Year Award.’”

The Plot of Spy:

Susan Cooper (Melissa McCarthy) is an unassuming, deskbound CIA analyst, and the unsung hero behind the Agency’s most dangerous missions. But when her partner (Jude Law) falls off the grid and another top agent (Jason Statham) is compromised, she volunteers to go deep undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent a global disaster.
