Sacha Baron Cohen Hires the ‘Klown’ Writers to Script His Next Movie

By

Denmark’s finest comedians are taking the reins of Sacha Baron Cohen’s new movie. Variety reports that Baron Cohen has hired Danish duo Casper Christensen and Frank Hvam, who wrote and starred in the cult hit comedy Klown (or Klovn in Denmark) and the TV series of the same name upon which the movie was based, to write his upcoming film The Lesbian. Announced last year, The Lesbian is a starring vehicle for Baron Cohen based on Hong Kong billionaire Cecil Chao, who offered $64 million to any man who could convince his lesbian daughter to marry him so she wouldn’t marry her longtime girlfriend. You know, funny comedy stuff. Sacha Baron Cohen traveled to Denmark to woo Christensen and Hvam into working on the movie and successfully convinced them to put their Klown sequel on hold to take the job. Just what we need, Sacha Baron Cohen helping more European comedians steal our American comedy jobs.
