Sacha Baron Cohen’s film Grimsby given new title

SACHA Baron Cohen’s upcoming film Grimsby has been given a new name.

The comedy, due for release next spring, will now be called The Brothers Grimsby – a play on the Brothers Grimm.

Studio Sony Pictures confirmed the name change for the film which will see Baron Cohen star as a football hooligan with Mark Strong playing his brother – a black-ops spy.

Helmed by Now You See Me director Louis Leterrier, Baron Cohen worked on the screenplay alongside Alan Partridge and Borat scribe Peter Baynham and Wreck-It Ralph writer Phil Johnston.

Baron Cohen and Strong are joined by Rebel Wilson, Annabelle Wallis, Isla Fisher, Ian McShane, Gabourey Sidibe, David Harewood, Johnny Vegas, Penelope Cruz, and Scott Adkins.

The film has sparked controversy for its apparently negative depiction of the town.

Six women weighing more than 20 stone each have also been recruited, with film extra Maurice Maree telling the Sunday Times that there would be scenes of “binge-eating, copious vomiting and naked wobbling across a football pitch”.

Lionsgate has announced that Now You See Me 2 (rumoured to be titled Now You Don’t) will be released on June 10th 2016. Michael Caine has revealed that Daniel Radcliffe will be joining the cast as his son. Some recent reports suggest that Isla will not be returning for the sequel because she will be otherwise engaged with family business (we will wait to hear what – if anything – Isla and Sacha say on this!) when filming is due to start in November.

Isla and Sacha’s first project together – Grimsby – will be released on July 31st 2015. The film is said to be about a British Black-ops spy whose brother is a football hooligan.

Isla Fisher Joins Husband Sacha Baron Cohen in Sony’s Spy Spoof ‘Grimsby’

Fresh off back-to-back box office hits “The Great Gatsby” and “Now You See Me,” Isla Fisher has signed on to join her husband Sacha Baron Cohen in Sony’s upcoming spy spoof “Grimsby,” TheWrap has learned.

The action-comedy finds Mark Strong (“Kick-Ass”) playing a British black ops spy who is forced to go on the run and team up with his idiotic English football hooligan brother (Baron Cohen).

Ian McShane and Rebel Wilson co-star alongside Annabelle Wallis, David Harewood, Oscar-nominated “Precious” star Gabourey Sidibe and English comedian Johnny Vegas.

Fisher will tackle a key supporting role, possibly as a femme fatale or other comely vixen.

Louis Leterrier (“Now You See Me”) is directing from a script by Baron Cohen, Phil Johnston and Peter Baynham, with Baron Cohen and Johnston sharing story credit.

Fisher next stars in the Blumhouse movie “Visions” and Dan Schechter’s Elmore Leonard adaptation “Life of Crime.” She’s represented by CAA, Mosaic, Shanahan Management and attorney Warren Dern.
