Sacha Baron Cohen's 'The Dictator' Gets A Release Date
"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."
OK, so apparently Saddam Hussein wrote a romance novel, which is now (loosely, I resume) serving as an inspiration to a comedy by Larry Charles and Sacha Baron Cohen. So a novel written by a dictator that is not about a dictator is being loosely adapted into a movie about a dictator called The Dictator. Wow. I wonder if Saddam will get a story credit. (Deadline)
