Paramount Pictures has released a new photo of comedian Sacha Baron Cohen in full wardrobe for his upcoming role in 'The Dictator.'

Sacha's newest comedy will tell the story of an autocrat who risks his life to make sure that the country he rules and loves will never see democracy. The film has reportedly been inspired by a bestselling novel written by Saddam Hussein, called Zabibah and the King.

Larry Charles ('Bruno' and 'Borat') will direct the project, which is set to be released in May of 2012.
