'The Dictator' Attracts Megan Fox And John C Reilly

John C Reilly
You may remember a while back a news post that revealed that Sacha Baron Cohen was first in line to take the lead role in an upcoming project entitled The Dictator which Baron Cohen was behind. Since then Cohen has confirmed himself in the lead role and today has revealed that both Megan Fox and John C Reilly will be joining the cast of the new comedy from the makers of both Bruno and Borat. The duo will join a star-studded cast which includes Ben Kingsley.

Not too much information has been revealed about the film as yet but it looks like it will take a different route to Cohen's previous comedies in that it will be less improvised and will employ actors with greater prestige.

Total Film revealed the basic plot of the film: “[Sacha] Baron Cohen plays a ruthless dictator who heads to the U.S. for a meeting at the United Nations and finds that his number two has replaced him with an unsuspecting sheepherder lookalike.

“As the dictator wanders the city, he meets the owner of an organic food store… She turns around his

dictatorial thinking, and there’s a little romance in it as well.

The Dictator will be hitting our screens in May 2012.

Do you think the film will be better than Bruno and Borat? Are you looking forward to seeing it? Let us know below.
