NEWS: Sacha Baron Cohen Is Back In "The Dictator"

Sacha Baron Cohen's new film since Bruno will be "The Dictator"

Cohen's next film by Seinfeld / Curb / general great comedy director Larry Charles will be based upon Hussein in "The Dictator". Another Seinfeld link will be the writers Alec Berg, Jeff Schaffer and David Mandel that “tells the heroic story of a dictator who risked his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed. It is inspired by the best selling novel, Zabibah and The King, by Saddam Hussein”.

Cohen will play both the dictator in question and a goat herder. This delays the strange Freddie Mercury film that was announced last year with Cohen playing Mercury himself. In any case, hopefully this will put Cohen back on the map after a somewhat disappointing Bruno - and the fact it's a new character is even better. Are you looking forward to it?
