Leterrier To Helm Baron Cohen Spy Comedy

“Now You See Me” and “The Incredible Hulk” director Louis Leterrier is set to helm Sacha Baron Cohen’s spy-action comedy “Grimsby” at Paramount.

The story follows a British black ops agent forced to go on the run with a northern English soccer hooligan who is also his long-lost brother.

Baron Cohen and Phil Johnston sold the film pitch last August, and Leterrier met with Baron Cohen and Paramount several times in order to make it his next project.
