Sacha Baron Cohen’s Next Comedy “The Dictator”

hollywoodnews.com: Paramount Pictures announced today that Sacha Baron Cohen’s new comedy THE DICTATOR will be released worldwide on May 11, 2012. The studio also announced that Larry Charles (‘Borat’, ‘Bruno’) has come aboard to direct.

The film 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.

Producing alongside Baron Cohen are Scott Rudin, Alec Berg, Jeff Schaffer, and David Mandel. The project marks the first collaboration for Rudin (‘The Social Network,’ ‘True Grit’) and Baron Cohen, while Berg, Schaffer and Mandel (Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm) join him as screenwriters on the movie. The movie is the latest collaboration between Baron Cohen and Charles, who previously worked together on ‘Borat’ as well as ‘Bruno’. Dan Mazer (‘Borat’ ‘Bruno’), Ant Hines (“Borat” “Bruno”) and Peter Baynham (‘Borat’) will serve as executive producers, reuniting the rest of the Academy Award®-nominated and Golden Globe winning ?Borat? team. Todd Schulman (“Borat” ‘Bruno’) is co-producing under Baron Cohen’s Four By Two Films banner.
