Hopefully the third time’s a charm for director Larry Charles and Sacha Baron Cohen. Actually, the first two times have already proven to be quite charming, as they consisted of Borat and Bruno. Even so, here’s hoping for a three-peat.
The pair are teaming up again for The Dictator, a film written by Cohen as well as Alec Berg, Jeff Schaffer and David Mandel of “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” Cohen will play both a goat herder and a deposed foreign dictator traveling across the U.S. Will the film pack as many laughs as Borat, or perhaps as many ball-sacks as Bruno? Only time will tell. (24 Frames via Collider)
