Sacha Baron Cohen Sells James Bond Spoof to Paramount

Share

He’s spoofed citizens of numerous countries in his various portrayals over the years, but now Sacha Baron Cohen takes aim at the one-and-only James Bond.  He and Phil Johnston recently sold the spoof pitch to Paramount that features a Bond-like spy forced to go into hiding along with his “moronic, soccer hooligan” brother.  Baron Cohen and Johnston will set to work on the script.  Don’t expect the name “Bond” to appear anywhere in the treatment as Paramount doesn’t own the rights.  Per Variety, expect Baron Cohen to star in the film as the brother.  Although, for once, I’d like to see Baron Cohen take a suave, cultured turn as the spy alongside someone rowdy and insane…unless they can land Daniel Craig as the spy.  Fingers crossed.
