Sacha Baron Cohen is 'The Dictator'

Sacha Baron Cohen has lined up his latest comedy project – and this time, it’s an adaptation of a novel by Saddam Hussein!

The Dictator, scheduled for a May 11, 2012 release, is “the heroic story of a dictator who risked his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed” and is inspired by Saddam‘s novel Zabibah and The King.

Larry Charles, who also helmed Borat and Bruno, will direct the film.
