British comic actor Sacha Baron Cohen has apparently 'secretly' filmed a sequel to his 2006 hit comedy movie 'Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan was a massive success'.

Social media reports earlier this summer first hinted that Cohen was up to something with his Borat character, and reportedly, Cohen has already started screening the sequel for industry insiders. The Borat sequel does not currently have an official distributor, and therefore, there's also no release date. We also don't know if Sacha Baron Cohen will have any celebrity co-stars in the sequel.

Borat 2 will reportedly follow the titular reporter who, now a famous figure, must pretend to be someone else to hide from the public in a meta story. According to The Film Stage, Borat 2 is reportedly titled 'Great Success'. The film is also said to touch on Trump and Epstein's relationship and the coronavirus, and will include cameos from Mike Pence, Rudy Giuliani and more. One of the cameos also reportedly could derail a political career.

The 2006 film earned Cohen a Golden Globe nomination and received an Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay. If these plot details surrounding the film turn out to be true, Borat 2 could turn into a huge success like its predecessor.
