Sacha Baron Cohen

Briefly: The spy comedy Grimsby, co-written and starring Sacha Baron Cohen, has just been given a release date by Sony Pictures. Yes, you read that right. Though Paramount (who released his previous films) recently re-upped their first look deal with the comedic genius, his latest film has switched distributors.

Directed by Louis Leterrier, Sony will release Grimsby July 31, 2015. Filming starts this summer on the comedy which stars Cohen as an English soccer hooligan whose (yet to be cast) brother is a secret agent. [Deadline]
