“Now You See Me” director Louis Leterrier is set to hit the big screen again, this time with “Grimsby”.

The spy comedy will star Sacha Baron Cohen, who wrote the script along with Phil Johnston. The pair sold the project to Paramount in August.

“Grimsby” follows a British black ops agent who is on the run with his long-lost brother – a northern English soccer hooligan.

According to Variety, Leterrier had met with Paramount and Baron Cohen many times before he was chosen, determined to helm the pic.

Baron Cohen was reportedly meeting with directors like Leterrier who had an action background, in order to couple the action elements of the film with the comedic ones.
