Sacha has been spotted filming for new film ‘The Dictator’ in the streets of New York City. Pictures were taken of Sacha in his full Dictator gear riding a camel through the streets with a suitably large entourage.
There are also pictures of Sacha, in more modest dress being tackled by a waiter after he steal food from an unsuspecting diner at a restaurant.
The pictures do not give much away in terms of the plot, but it can be assumed the camel photos are of the Dictator before he meets his future love – the peasant girl whilst the photos of Sacha stealing food are when the Dictator hits harder times once his new love has reformed his dictatorial ways.
Yo, a few more photos have been leaked of Sacha in his new role of ‘The Dictator’.
Some further plot details have also come to light, and we learn that The Dictator heads to the U.S. for a meeting at the United Nations and finds that his number two has replaced him with an unsuspecting sheepherder lookalike.
As the dictator wanders the city, he meets the owner of an organic food store who turns around his dictatorial thinking, and a romance blossoms between them.
Yo – check this out. The first official pictures have emerged of Sacha Baron Cohen as ‘The Dictator’ where he plays the role of an Iraqi leader who falls in love with a peasant girl (more info here), based on a novel written by Suddam Hussein.
Sacha Baron Cohen is to star in a film of Zabibah and the King, a romantic novel written by Iraqi dictator. The novel tells a tale of a wise and good Iraqi leader who falls in love with a humble peasant girl. Re-titled The Dictator, Cohen will be transforming the story from a romantic love story into a political comedy.
The Guardian reports that Zabibah and the King was published anonymously in 2000, complete with a strap-line that promised royalties would go “to the poor, the orphans, the miserable, the needy”. It is widely accepted within Iraq that the book was authored by Saddam, although the CIA later concluded that it was probably produced by ghost-writers, acting under direct instruction from the Iraqi leader.
