FILM: Borat Sequel May Be a Possibility

Yesterday Rupert Murdoch, chairman of 20th Century Fox, announced that Sacha Baron Cohen has signed on to do a sequel to the 2006 hit Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. No details were announced on where the film would be set or any of the plot points as Murdoch claims they are still in the "idea stage."

Sources are saying that Cohen will go shoot Bruno for Universal Studios before beginning production on the Borat sequel. Fox didn't comment on when the sequel would enter production.

I'm glad that they are making a sequel to Borat. I'm a huge fan of the character and it's great to see him doing well on the big screen. Sacha Baron Cohen deserves everything that he's earned for himself and it's good to see him working his way up the ladder.

I'm sure that it will be harder to shoot both Universal's Bruno and Fox's sequel to Borat because of all the media attention the first film attracted. More people are in on Cohen's joke this time around and won't be duped as easily. Then again, there are always going to be ignorant people who haven't heard a whisper about the British comedian or his skits.

What do you guys think about a sequel to Borat? Will Sacha Baron Cohen be able to pull it off?
