Sacha Baron Cohen Follows Up Borat and Bruno with Saddam Hussein Adaptation The Dictator

Sacha Baron Cohen Follows Up Borat and Bruno with Saddam Hussein Adaptation The Dictator

Thompson on Hollywood

Sacha Baron Cohen, of Borat and Bruno fame, will next star in Paramount’s The Dictator, hitting theaters worldwide on May 11, 2012. Borat (Twentieth Century Fox) and Bruno (Universal) director Larry Charles is re-teaming with Cohen. The Dictator is based on Saddam Hussein best-selling novel, Zabibah and The King, and is described as “the heroic story of a dictator who risked his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed.” Brings tears to our eyes already.

Cohen is producing with Scott Rudin, Alec Berg, Jeff Schaffer, and David Mandel. All but Rudin (who has a long relationship at Paramount and produced True Grit), are co-writing.
