Sacha Baron Cohen’s THE DICTATOR Movie Release Date Announced
THE DICTATOR, the new Sacha Baron Cohen comedy now has a release date from Paramount Pictures. Audiences will be able to see The Dictator in theaters on May 11, 2012.
The picture reunites Cohen with Larry Charles, the director Cohen’s Borat and Bruno films. The Dictator has been around since last April when it was being pitched by writers Berg Schaffer and Mandel, and Cohen himself.
Four studios were after The Dictator, which shows Cohen in two roles – a dictator and a sheep herder – but Paramount really pulled out all of the stops when they were in the final two studios. They sent two sheep wearing Paramount T-shirts to Cohen and his reps. Paramount won the deal, and are very excited about the script.
Look for The Dictator in theaters May 11, 2012!
