“The Dictator” – “the heroic story of a dictator who risked his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed”

Looks like Paramount’s “The Dictator” may be another interesting film by Sacha Baron Cohen (of Borat fame). Here is an excerpt from THR (emphasis and link added),

Anna Faris is in negotiations to play the female lead in The Dictator, the new comedy Sacha Baron Cohen is doing for Paramount.

Larry Charles, who directed Borat, is back in the helming saddle for the Paramount movie, which has been described as “the heroic story of a dictator who risked his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed.” Cohen is said to play dual roles of a goat herder and a deposed foreign ruler who gets lost in the U.S.

Ben Kingsley and Jason Mantzoukas are also in the movie, playing fellows from the Middle East.”
