What would a Sacha Baron Cohen movie be without a little controversy and this time it's coming from the MPAA. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cohen's new film Bruno will apparently be hit with an initial NC-17 rating, if it is submitted in its current state.

Apparently the filmmakers were told of the ratings news, even though they have yet to submit the film for a final ratings determination. The film will be released on July 10 by Universal, which is aiming for an R rating.
