Paramount Pictures has pushed its spy comedy Grimsby from its originally-slated July 31, 2015 release date to February 26, 2016. The spy comedy starring Sacha Baron Cohen was set to go up against Warner Bros. Point Break remake, Focus Features' Selfless and The Weinstein Company's Southpaw on July 31, 2015. Now it will face Paramount's Ben-Hur remake next winter.
Grimsby centers on a British secret agent (Mark Strong) who is forced to go into hiding in his hometown with his dim-witted soccer hooligan brother (Sacha Baron Cohen). Penélope Cruz also stars as a benevolent corporate leader who is hiding a secret. Annabelle Wallis, Rebel Wilson, David Harewood, Ian McShane, Gabourey Sidibe, Johnny Vegas and Isla Fisher round out the supporting cast.
Louis Leterrier (Now You See Me) is directing Grimsby from a script he co-wrote with Phil Johnston (Cedar Rapids, Wreck-It Ralph). Now that the release date has been pushed, it seems we'll have to wait quite some time for the first trailer, but, in case you missed it, you can check out the first photo of Sacha Baron Cohen as the title character from July.
