Borat's Sacha Baron Cohen has confirmed that he will follow up his smash comedy success with Bruno. According to Variety, his next film directly after that will be a remake of the French comedy Le Diner de Cons entitled Dinner for Schmucks.
Bruno, like Borat, is based on a character from Sacha's Da Ali G Show, which originated on the UK's Channel Four before airing on HBO. Bruno is a gay fashion reporter who interviews and antagonizes members of the fashion world much in the same way that Borat treats his subjects.
Dinner for Schmucks will go into production directly after Bruno is finished. Jay Roach is already attached as a director on the project, but will have to make a hole in his already full schedule to beat the impending strike that is coming up next June. The film revolves around a weekly dinner party held by a Paris publisher who challenges his friends to bring the most pathetic guest to the party.
Cohen is set to play a character with such extraordinary schmuckiness that he can destroy the personal life of anyone with whom he comes in contact.
