Since Sacha Baron Cohen teamed up with Now You See Me director Louis Leterrier for his upcoming spy spoof Grimsby, it’s only natural that Leterrier’s Now You See Me star—and Cohen’s wife—Isla Fisher should join the cast. Fisher will reportedly have a key supporting role, “possibly as a femme fatale or other comely vixen,” to which nobody on the planet likely objects. Rebel Wilson was also recently added to the film, along with Ian McShane, Annabelle Wallis, Gabourey Sidibe, and a few others. Grimsby is an action comedy starring Mark Strong as a British black-ops spy who must go on the run and join forces with his “idiotic English football hooligan brother,” played by Cohen. Production will begin this summer.
