French filmmaker to direct spy comedy…

Louis Leterrier (‘Now You See Me,’ ‘The Incredible Hulk,’ ‘Transporter 2’) has signed on to take the helm of the Sacha Baron Cohen-led spy-action comedy ‘Grimsby.’

The film, first announced last year, follows “a British black ops agent who is forced to go on the run with his long-lost brother, who is a northern English soccer hooligan.”

‘Grimsby’ is set up over at Paramount with Baron Cohen and Phil Johnston (‘Wreck-It Ralph,’ ‘Cedar Rapids’) providing the script.
