Sacha Baron Cohen Sells James Bond Spy spoof to Paramount

Posted Tuesday August 7, 2012 1:26 PM GMT

Not even James Bond is safe from Sacha Baron Cohen's comedic grasp. The "Borat" star recently sold an untitled James Bond spoof to Paramount.

The story, co written by Phil Johnston, features a suave spy "forced to go on the run with his long-lost brother, a moronic soccer hooligan."

Though rumored, there is no confirmation that Cohen will play the main character. Before the spy comedy, you can see the 40-year-old Brit starting December 14th in "Les Miserables" in which he portrays the villain, Thénardier.

The most highly anticipated "Bruno" star movie, however, may be the long-awaited Freddie Mercury biopic in which he has been tapped to play the Queen frontman. Filming has not yet begun on the project.
