Important information about The Dictator

Saturday June 11th 2011

The first official photo from The Dictator was launched on Thursday and given my distaste for all things ‘first official photo’, you might be surprised to find me re-posting it here today (albeit cropped slightly to fit on the blog in a more neat fashion).

Well get ready to retract your surprise because despite being directed by Bruno and Borat ‘helmer’ Larry Charles, Sacha Baron Cohen chose to co-produce and co-write the film with none other than Alec Berg, Jeff Schaffer and David Mandel. Wondering where you’ve heard their names before?

That’s right. After an eight year hiatus they’re finally back on the big screen where they belong.

The film’s UK release is set for May 11th 2012 so why not familiarise yourself with their existing oeuvre in the meantime?
