Baron Cohen Gets Spielberg Role

Published on December 31, 2007 with No Comments

Sacha Baron Cohen has landed a starring role in a new Steven Spielberg movie.

Just a week after Cohen announced he had retired Borat – following the success of 2006 movie Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan – he has been signed to star as 60s hippie satirist Abbie Hoffman in The Trial of the Chicago Seven.

Hoffman found fame during the Vietnam War by playing pranks to campaign against the conflict. The movie is slated for release in 2010.

Vincent D’Onofrio previously played Hoffman in 2000 film Steal This Movie, which was based on a screenplay written by Hoffman and his wife Anita.
