Penelope Cruz for Grimsby comedy

Penelope Cruz is joining Sacha Baron Cohen in spoof spy comedy Grimsby.

The film - co-written and produced by Sacha - sees the Ali G star play a reformed football hooligan forced to go on the run with his brother - a suave secret agent played by Mark Strong.

Sources told the Hollywood Reporter the Spanish Oscar-winning actress will play "a philanthropic corporate leader" who may have hidden secrets.

The cast already includes Rebel Wilson, Ian McShane, Gabourey Sidibe and Annabelle Wallis and is being directed by French action filmmaker Louis Leterrier.

Filming has already begun in London and will also take place in South Africa.
