Title Revealed In New WGA Filing
Borat star Sacha Baron Cohen is reported to have test-screened the follow-up to his 2006 hit, which was shot during the pandemic.
Cohen secretly filmed the new sequel with only a few in the entertainment industry knowing what he was up to. The comedian was spotted in Long Beach, California driving a pickup truck in character a few months ago, which is when the secret came out.
The full title of Borat 2 is reported to be Borat: Gift Of Pornographic Monkey To Vice Premiere Mikhael Pence To Make Benefit Recently Diminished Nation Of Kazakhstan. The title was originally discovered on the Writer’s Guild of America West’s website, which has since been taken down.
In August, Collider first broke the news that Borat 2, filmed during the coronavirus pandemic –
“has already been shot and even screened for a select few industry types”.
That report contained this YouTube video –
The previous month it emerged that Rudy Giuliani had reported Cohen to the police following an interview in which he apparently entered his office wearing a pink bikini. Giuliani told Page Six –
“This person comes in yelling and screaming, and I thought this must be a scam or a shake-down, so I reported it to the police,”
Meanwhile, Film Stage reports that the film focuses on the global pandemic, as well as Donald Trump’s relationship with Jeffrey Epstein.
Cohen’s 2018 TV series Who Is America? saw the comedian taking on a few different characters while he interviewed a number of politicians and celebrities, including Bernie Sanders, OJ Simpson, and former vice president Dick Cheney.
