Sacha Baron Cohen to Make "The Lesbian"

Posted Thursday October 4, 2012 8:15 PM GMT

They say the truth is stranger than fiction and Sacha Baron Cohen had only to look through recent headlines to find the inspiration for his next comedy project.

Tentatively titled, "The Lesbian," the movie will be loosely based on the newsworthy story of Hong Hong billionaire Cecil Chao Sze-Tsung who made the offer of $65 million to any male suitor who can win over and marry his lesbian daughter.

Gigi is currently married to a woman, but insists she's not upset with her father. She recently told the AP, "I'm actually on very, very loving terms with my father. We speak on a daily basis. He just has a very interesting way of expressing his fatherly love."

The new endeavor comes after this spring's "The Dictator" grossed $177 million at the box office. In the meantime, you can see Sacha this Christmas in the remake of the musical "Les Misérables," in which he plays the villain, "Thénardier"
