Rookie agents Wang Talu, Xu Weizhou, Sandrine Pinna team up in spy comedy

Top requirement to become an agent: being unreasonably attractive

Spy Comedy The Rookies 素人特工 is coming out this week and the trailer actually looks really fun. The film directed and written by Alan Yuen (Monster Hunt, Firestorm, New Police Story) comes out on the July 12th in China and seems to have potential for overseas releases.

Wang Talu, Xu Weizhou, Sandrine Pinna, Milla Jovovich, Xiao Zhan, and Liu Meitong star in this summer blockbuster that looks like it has some potential.

Jackson Wang sings a remix of Papillion for the film here.

A team of accidental agents consisting of an extreme sport lover (Wang Talu), a mad scientist (Xu Weizhou), a police officer (Sandrine Pinna), and an unemployed doctor (Liu Meitong) team up with the help of special agent Milla Jovovich to try and stop a group of terroists.
