Sacha Baron Cohen Producing Accidentes
That's 'accidents' in Spanish, you know

Sacha Baron Cohen, who is currently putting the final fey flourishes to Bruno, is planning his next project. Baron Cohen has sold Fox Atomic a pitch for Accidentes , which the comedian will produce and potentially star in.

The comedy follows a Latin lawyer who transforms from contingency attorney to hero of the people – and scourge of the LA elite – when he represents an immigrant in a case against his wealthy employer after a landscaping mishap.

The film will be written by Peter Baynham, who co-wrote Borat.

Peter Baynham?
Is that Peter Baynham off of Alan Partridge and the Saturday Night Armistace? Ge's absolutely hilarious. Excellent. This could be very interestingly anti-Hollywood. More
