Why Sacha Baron Cohen’s Borat 2 Director Tried To Convince Him Not To Make The Sequel



I was the first person Sacha called about directing this. I went into the meeting with him and Anthony Hines, who is a writer that’s been involved in everything Sasha has done, Monica Levinson the producer, and a few other people. I told him I loved the script, but I came on very strong. I basically said that Borat is the funniest movie ever made and that it’s almost certainly a mistake to do a sequel. I said in almost every version of this it’s a disaster: most comedy sequels aren’t good, the long-delayed sequels are extremely tough, and because of the nature of the movie, Borat is one of the most popular comedy characters of the last century so you have to find people who don’t know who he is.
