Sacha Baron Cohen Teams Up with Paramount to Develop THE LESBIAN
Sacha Baron Cohen and Paramount Pictures are partnering up once again for THE LESBIAN, a comedy based on the Hong Kong billionaire who attempted to sell his lesbian daughter into a heterosexual marriage for $65 million.
At this time, Cohen has not yet been confirmed to star, and no writer is attached.
Just last week, Cecil Chao, Hong Kong real estate king became an international figurehead when he vowed $65 million to the man who could end his daughter's relationship with her female partner, and convince her to marry him.
Cohen has previously worked with Paramount on THE DICTATOR this summer.
The British comedian is best known for his 2007 hit, "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan" in which he convinced Americans that he was an antisemitic journalist from Kazakhstan.
