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

22 July 2008  |  Written by Olly Richards  |  Source: Variety

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
