Sacha Baron Cohen Explains Why Borat 3 Isn’t Likely
Whatever else he does, Sasha Baron Cohen will probably always be known best for his character Borat. The first movie starring Borat was a solid hit and the sequel that followed last year was seen to be as good, if not even better, by many fans and critics. Considering that sort of success, it would be standard operating procedure in Hollywood to at least consider another movie at some point down the road. However, Sasha Baron Cohen is casting serious doubt on that, saying he does not expect to play Borat on the screen again.
It sounds like, other under circumstances, we wouldn't even have seen the existing Borat sequel. Sasha Baron Cohen tells Variety that the decision to make Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, was specifically because he felt the character was needed to draw attention to the current political administration, and so he doesn't see much point in doing it again. According to Cohen...
"I brought Borat out because of Trump. There was a purpose to this movie, and I don’t really see the purpose to doing it again. So yeah, he’s locked away in the cupboard."
