Sacha Baron Cohen’s Four By Two Films will team with Paramount to develop “The Lesbian.” Yes, really. Baron Cohen works fast: the project is inspired by Hong Kong billionaire Cecil Chao, who this past September offered $65 million to any man who could successfully marry his lesbian daughter (watch video below). The news of the offer was followed by reports that a French church blessed the young woman and her longtime girlfriend.
“The Lesbian” is the film’s tentative title. A writer has not yet been attached.
Baron Cohen’s “The Dictator” grossed $175 million globally for Paramount this summer. Being PC has never been a concern.
