‘Borat 2’ already secretly filmed by Sacha Baron Cohen: report

Borat is back.

Following reports that a disguised Sacha Baron Cohen, 48, had been spotted at a right-wing event in June, film blog Collider can “exclusively” confirm that “Borat 2” has already been shot and screened.

The beloved Kazakh caricature played by Cohen — who disguises himself as an awkward and inappropriate news-feature correspondent and creates mayhem in real-life settings — made his film debut in 2006 in “Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.”

Prior to the movie’s release, he found mainstream success playing bit characters on British television, including one of his most famous personas, “Ali G.” He spun off the character into his own TV series, “Da Ali G Show” in 2000.

Details about the plot of “Borat 2” have not been confirmed, nor have the involvement of the original film’s director, Larry Charles, or producer, Jay Roach. However, Collider claims to have learned that the small-town Eastern European broadcaster is now a high-profile television personality. In the sequel, the public figure must now go “undercover” to be able to interview people without revealing his celebrity.

It’s “Cohen playing Borat playing Cohen,” said one insider, reportedly — though that description was disputed, according to Collider.

After grossing $262 million on the first film, Cohen went on to create more absurd characters, in “Bruno” (2009) and “The Dictator” (2012).

At the June event, he was spotted trying to disguise himself as a country singer at an event for the “Three Percenters” militia group. It’s unclear if the stunt was filmed for “Borat 2.”
