Last week, we brought you the news that British comedian Johnny Vegas has joined the cast list for Sacha Baron Cohen’s new film, Grimsby.

Now it has also been announced that none other than Baron Cohen’s wife, actress Isla Fisher will be joining them.

Fisher will star opposite her husband in a “key supporting female role” in the film which he will also produce. Rebel Wilson also joins the ever growing cast, which includes Ian McShane and David Harewood.

Mark Strong will head the film as a British spy who must go on the run with his football hooligan brother, played by Cohen.  It is yet to be revealed which role Fisher will take, but it will be fun to watch her play opposite her husband.

Grimsby will start shooting this summer ready for release on July 31, 2015.
