Sacha Baron Cohen's spy comedy will be directed by Louis Leterrier, it has been confirmed.

The Borat and Ali G star had been searching for a director to take the reins on the upcoming film and Louis is now on board, reported Variety.

The filmmaker had apparently been "aggressively pursuing" the project and had met with Sacha on several occasions.

The movie, titled Grimsby, will see Sacha's reformed football hooligan going on the run with his long-lost brother, who is a spy inspired by James Bond.

Louis' previous movies include The Incredible Hulk, Now You See Me and Clash Of The Titans.
