The Dictator - TV Spot

The Dictator

The Dictator tells the heroic story of a dictator who risked his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed.

It is inspired by the best-selling novel Zabibah and The King by Saddam Hussein.

Producing alongside Baron Cohen are Scott Rudin, Alec Berg, Jeff Schaffer, and David Mandel. The project marks the first collaboration for Rudin (The Social Network, True Grit) and Baron Cohen, while Berg, Schaffer and Mandel (Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm) join him as screenwriters on the movie.

The movie is the latest collaboration between Baron Cohen and Charles, who previously worked together on Borat as well as Bruno.

It is released in cinemas on May 16, 2012.
