This morning AOL Video brings us a first look at the trailer for Sacha Baron Cohen‘s latest film, The Dictator. Said to be based on the book by Saddam Hussein. Check it out for yourself to see what you think:
The film is directed by Larry Charles, of Seinfeld fame, who also directed Cohen’s previous two films, Borat and Bruno. Here, he brings in cohorts Alec Berg, David Mandel, and Jeff Schaffer, Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm alums, to write the script with Cohen.
While Bruno didn’t prove as successful as Borat, the films were made so cheap that both were successful financially, and this time around it looks like they got a bigger budget, if the trailer is any indication. You can check it out for yourself when the film releases at the beginning of next summer, May 11th, 2012.
