High five! Borat 2 is Coming

Hide your bears and don't plan inviting any strange guests to your fancy southern dinner parties - plans are in the works for Borat 2, a sequel to follow up the 2006 howler. No word yet on naked wrestling in hotel lobbies or if they are looking for another ice cream truck to drive across the country.

"Sacha Baron Cohen has signed up to do a sequel to his popular Borat movie based on the controversial Kazach journalist, according to Rupert Murdoch, chairman and chief executive of News Corp, whose film division last year released the first Borat film.

Mr Baron Cohen is currently working on a film to follow Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, but it will be based on another one of his characters, Bruno, a gay Austrian fashion show presenter. Universal Studios won the rights to the new film last year. However, once that is completed, Mr Baron Cohen will “come back and do Borat Two,” Mr Murdoch said during an interview at a conference in New York."

Just for fun: a video of Borat giving a press conference in front of the White House last year.

Is there anyone out there who doesn't know who Borat is at this point? It seems like a bag idea to me...
