The cries of "yeah, baby!" now a decade absent from theaters, Paramount has picked up an untitled comedy project from Cohen and Cedar Rapids writer Phil Johnston that, according to The Hollywood Reporter's studio source, focuses a 007-like spy who goes on the run with his long-lost brother, described a "a moronic soccer hooligan." Though Cohen pitched the concept, it's not yet clear if he'll take a role, as "that would depend on availability and scheduling." But to state the obvious: of course he'll be both parts, differentiating them with different funny wigs and voices. Let's be adults here.
