THE DICTATOR is coming to theaters on May 11, 2012 from Paramount Pictures. The film stars actor and comedian Sacha Baron Cohen in his fourth movie. The film follows the heroic story of a dictator who risked his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed.
Larry Charles, who previously directed Baron Cohen's mockumentaries Borat and Brüno, will also direct the film. Baron Cohen will star alongside Ben Kingsley and Anna Faris. The film is said to be inspired by the novel Zabibah and the King by Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein.
