Comedian keen on Spanish action-comedy
Sacha Baron Cohen is in talks to lead a remake of Spanish film Torrente.
The action-comedy film franchise already consists of three movies, with a fourth in the offing, and is the creation of writer-actor Santiago Segura.
In the films, Segura plays Jose Luis Torrente, a fascist, racist, chauvinistic and anti-communist retired cop.
It transpires the actor is keen to keep the remake located in Spain.
The reboot script is currently being worked on by Alec Berg, Jeff Schaffer and David Mandel, who are also writing the comedian’s next film, The Dictator.
Cohen is currently filming Martin Scorsese‘s children’s film Hugo Cabret.
