Borat 2: Sacha Baron Cohen has reportedly completed filming
After Golden Globe winner Sacha Baron Cohen was spotted by eagle-eyed fans in his iconic Borat costume last month, speculations began circulating that a new installment to Cohen’s 2006 comedy film might be in the works. Now, Collider confirms that the 48-year-old English comedian is indeed currently working on a new Borat film and has already completed its filming. It has also reportedly been screened for a select few industry types.
According to the outlet, the sequel will find the Kazakh journalist going undercover in order to interview people after getting recognition from the public due to the first film. Further plot details are still being kept under wraps.
In Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, Sacha Baron Cohen – star of HBO’s hit comedy “Da Ali G Show,” takes his outrageous Kazakhstani reporter character Borat to the big screen. In this hilariously offensive movie, Borat travels from his primitive home in Kazakhstan to the U.S. to make a documentary. On his cross-country road-trip, Borat meets real people in real situations with hysterical consequences.
The film also featured Ken Davitan as the producer Azamat Bagatov, Luenell as Luenell the prostitute, and Pamela Anderson as herself along with politicians Alan Keyes and Bob Barr.
Borat was directed by Larry Charles from a script written by Cohen, Anthony Capobianco, Peter Baynham and Dan Mazer based on a story by Cohen, Baynham, Anthony Hines and Todd Phillips. The film was produced by Cohen and Jay Roach.
Since its release in 2006, the film earned positive reviews from critics and was also a box office hit with a worldwide gross of more than $260 million. It also earned numerous nods including: 2 Golden Globe nominations with Cohen winning the Best Actor in a Motion Picture-Musical or Comedy Award; and an Oscar nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay.
