The sequel to the Borat movie will be released in October this year.
This comes after reports claimed the creators of the movie wanted to get it out ahead of the upcoming presidential election in the US in order to reach younger voters.
According to reports, Sacha Baron Cohen, who plays Borat, had to wear bullet proof vests on numerous occasions while filming the sequel, as there were concerns for his safety.
And while there’s no confirmation from Cohen on the sequel’s title, the original 2006 film was called Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, so it wouldn’t be a surprise, would it?
Unnamed sources told Collider that the sequel finds Borat (played by Cohen) under the impression that he has become a successful movie star, given his newfound fame in the wake of the first film.
The Kazakh journalist responds to this by attempting to disguise himself from the public, even going so far as to conduct interviews incognito.
One source suggested to the media outlet that the film will be ‘Cohen playing Borat playing Cohen’. Oof, meta.
Last month, 48-year-old Cohen was spotted filming in Los Angeles in full Borat garb.
A clip shared on social media appeared to show the actor and comedian wearing a grey-coloured suit and sporting his instantly recognisable moustache while in a yellow pick-up truck in Long Beach.
