Sacha Baron Cohen to star in `The Lesbians`

Los Angeles: Sacha Baron Cohen, famous for taking jibes at people with his on-screen roles, is all set to star in another comedy project ‘The Lesbian’.

Cohen, who is known for his movies like `Borat`, `Bruno` and `The Dictator`, is teaming up with Paramount Pictures for the film, which is inspired by real-life story of a Hong Kong billionaire named Cecil Chao.

The richman offered USD 65 million to any man who would marry his homosexual daughter Gigi, reported Aceshowbiz.

Cecil recently grabbed international headlines after a French church reportedly blessed his daughter`s relationship with her longtime girlfriend. The 76-year-old man himself has never married and is famously known for always dating much younger women.

"`The Lesbian` is conceived as a potential starring vehicle for Baron Cohen, who will produce through his Four By Two Films banner," the studio said in a statement.

The studio also states that no writers have been attached to the project.

Cohen teamed up with Paramount this summer on ‘The Dictator’, which grossed USD 175 million worldwide.
