Sacha Baron Cohen to Develop THE LESBIAN for Paramount, Based on a True Story

     October 4, 2012


Sacha Baron Cohen’s next project might be his strangest yet (and that’s saying something); the kicker is that it’s based on real life events.  Set up through Cohen’s Four by Two Films for Paramount Pictures, the tentatively-titled film, The Lesbian, was inspired by Hong Kong billionaire Cecil Chao and his $65 million offer to any man who could turn his lesbian daughter straight.  THR reports that the film is a potential starring vehicle for Cohen, who would presumably star as the billionaire. No writer has yet been attached. Cohen’s last outing for Paramount, The Dictator, grossed $175 million worldwide for the studio.
