Sacha Baron Cohen's new football hooligan movie will be called Tinker, Tailor, Hooligan, Spy, it has been revealed.

The Borat and Ali G star is set to start shooting his new project next year and it has previously been reported that his latest alter-ego will be a Northern football thug.

According to the Daily Mail, the title of the movie has now been unveiled along with new details about the project.

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

It will be directed by Louis Leterrier.

Earlier this year it was reported that Sacha spent weeks researching his upcoming character.

A source told the Daily Mirror: "Sacha loves playing extreme characters and has done some extensive research... He will be pushing his own alter-ego as far as he can, making him incredibly stupid, narrow-minded and offensive.

"The plan is to try to fool a couple of famous football pundits and Premiership managers with his disguise, and use them in the film."
