So, looks like Sacha Baron Cohen is starring in a film version of Saddam Hussein’s novel Zabibah and the King, an allegorical and tender ditty wherein the King (Saddam) falls in love with Zabidah the peasant (the Iraqi people) who gets abused and raped by her husband (the invading US forces) and then dies on Jan. 17 (date of US’s first aerial bombardment of Baghdad in 1991). Hollywood’s The Dictator (because he was a dictator) adaptation will be overseen by Borat and BrĂ¼no director Larry Charles. So… it’s going to be funny?
