The Dictator is preparing to make his debut on our cinema screens 16th May 2012… watch the trailer below the synopsis!
The film tells the heroic story of a dictator who risked his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed. It is inspired by the best selling novel ‘Zabibah and The King’ by Saddam Hussein.
Producing alongside Baron Cohen are Scott Rudin, Alec Berg, Jeff Schaffer, and David Mandel. The project marks the first collaboration for Rudin (The Social Network, True Grit) and Baron Cohen, while Berg, Schaffer and Mandel (Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm) join him as screenwriters on the movie. The movie is the latest collaboration between Baron Cohen and Charles, who previously worked together on Borat as well as Bruno. Dan Mazer, Ant Hines and Peter Baynham (“Borat”) will serve as executive producers, reuniting the rest of the Academy Award®-nominated and Golden Globe winning Borat team. Todd Schulman is co-producing under Baron Cohen’s Four By Two Films banner.
