Sacha Baron Cohen finds writers for ‘The Lesbian’



Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest project is one step closer to being made. Casper Christensen and Frank Hvam, the Danish writers behind the comedy “Klown,” are in negotiations to write “The Lesbian.”

Cohen must have really loved “Klown,” because sources say he traveled all the way to Denmark to convince the pair to work with him.

“The Lesbian” won’t be a mockumentary in the vein of “Borat,” but it is inspired by the  stranger-than-fiction yet totally real-life story of Cecil Chao, the Hong Kong billionaire who offered $65 million to any man who could marry his lesbian daughter.

Cohen will produce and star in the film. What we really want to know, though, is if he’ll try to make Hebrew sound like Cantonese.
