The new Cohen film Bruno is already rumoured to be under way. A sighting earlier this month was reported by FirstShowing:
Over the last year, reported sightings of Cohen and his suspicious film crew have cropped up many times. Earlier this month, “a film crew claiming to be making a film about culture in America” infiltrated a church and airport in Wichita, Kansas. Sounds like Bruno.
I first have to admit that I found Borat to be so intelligent and utterly hilarious. I say this so that you don’t think I am a Sacha Baron Cohen hater. But for every reason I loved Borat, I fear I will hate Bruno.
The actual title for Bruno is reportedly going to be Bruno: Delicious Journeys Through America for the Purpose of Making Heterosexual Males Visibly Uncomfortable in the Presence of a Gay Foreigner in a Mesh T-Shirt.
Furthermore, the concept of the film is that this culturally displaced character will be a Television Reporter filming a documentary about US Culture?
This sounds like it is the same movie… Wait. It IS the same movie. Is his career already over if he has to resort to just churning out a remake of his own movie? Despite his diverse character roster, I just can’t see this working the second time.
Its the same movie. You did this already.
