Larry Charles re-teaming with Sacha Baron Cohen for THE DICTATOR

While their last film together, BRUNO, wasn’t quite the biggest hit that one would have hoped, Larry Charles is set to helm yet another film starring Sacha Baron Cohen.

According to the LA Times, the bearded filmmaker is set to helm Cohen’s next film, the dual performance piece THE DICTATOR, which follows a former foreign dictator who is lost in the U.S. The film will be Cohen’s next film, after he is done shooting Scorsese’s THE INVENTION OF HUGO CABRET, which hits theaters come Christmas of 2011.

Personally, while I’m not a huge fan of either BORAT or BRUNO, I do have a lot of love for both Cohen and Charles, a team that I find striking and massively compelling. The premise sounds interesting, if a bit too similar to BORAT for my liking, but honestly, I’m not quite as interested in this as something like the long-gestating Motley Crue biopic that Charles has been attached to for a while now. This film will no doubt up the ante that was already upped with BRUNO, but for me, it’s definitely a wait and see.

What about you?
