Borat and Bruno director Larry Charles is in the chair again; taking the reigns of the story that is based (loosely) on Hussein’s own novel “Zabibah and the King”. A book about a “benevolent, beloved king who falls in love with a beautiful, victimized girl who was raped by her cruel husband“…the King being Saddam & his peaceful Iraq of course, with the cruel rapist being the United States. Hussein was never one for subtlety, I think you’d agree.
We’re pretty sure this is going to be a return to form for the comedian, after 2009’s try-too-hard Bruno. Check out the man in his Dictatory uniform, below; as well as a snap of Cohen on set draped in a rather fetching Stars’n’Stripes shell suit. It’s niiiice.
