Amazon Studios Acquires Worldwide Rights For Borat Sequel, Aimed For End Of October Release


Deadline is exclusively reporting that Amazon Studios have acquired the worldwide rights to the sequel of the 2006 film Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, and plan to premiere it on Amazon Prime globally in late October this year.

 

The synopsis for the 2006 film is as follows:

Borat Sagdiyev is a Kazakh TV reporter from Kazakhstan, introducing us to his entire town in the opening of the film before informing us that the government of Kazakhstan is having him travel to the United States to make a documentary that will bring the cultures of America and Kazakhstan together. Borat is joined by his producer Azamat Bagatov to handle the behind the scenes work of the documentary.  Whilst on his travels and interviews, with a humour coach, a driving instructor, Borat watches television and is immediately smitten by a woman…CJ Parker of ‘Baywatch’. Immediately Borat, whilst doing the documentary, makes it his mission to cross the country and meet Pamela Anderson in person and win her love.

 

Sacha Baron Cohen and his crew flew to various parts of the U.S and internationally to shoot the film, though the majority of the details are being kept under wraps, other than it was the first film made during the COVID-19 shutdown, shot as quickly as coronavirus shooting restrictions were eased, and unions were in agreement on a return to shooting.

 

Sources also told Deadline, like in his previous work (Borat, Brüno and Who Is America series), Cohen had to wear a bulletproof vest on two different shooting days and on many days, there were risky and dangerous scenarios in shooting, as he rushed to have the film ready to open before Election Day in the U.S.
