With filming set to begin in the UK and South Africa soon, Penelope Cruz has joined the growing cast of Sacha Baron Cohen’s Grimsby. The spy comedy is being directed by Now You See Me’s Louis Letterier, and it stars Cohen as an English football hooligan who must help his “James Bond type” brother (Mark Strong) go on the run. Other character details are scarce, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, Cruz will play “a philanthropic corporate leader who may (or may not) be more than she seems,” which should pair nicely with Isla Fisher’s comely vixen.
