Remember that rich dude who was offering a bounty to any man who could ungay his daughter? We had a pretty good laugh when we heard and apparently so did the man who brought us Ali G and Borat.

You may have heard of the story of Gigi Chao, the lesbian daughter of the Hong Kong billionaire Cecil Chao, who offered HK$65 million to any man who could marry his daughter. And now Sacha Baron Cohen, the man behind Borat and Bruno) is signed up to develop a film based on the story.

The film is set to star Baron Cohen and will be produced by his company Four By Two through Paramount Picture films. There is no word yet on a writer.

What a development!

Cohen is the man. I haven’t seen Bruno, but I thought The Dictator was hilarious. Excited to see this shit materialize. I mean, it’s SBC trying to woo a billionaire’s daughter, the comedy writes itself.
