Paramount is reteaming with The Dictator star Sacha Baron Cohen on The Lesbian, based on the story of the Hong Kong billionaire who offered $65 million to any man who could marry his homosexual daughter. 

Cohen and his Four By Two Films banner are producing what could serve as a starring vehicle for the actor. No writer is on board at this stage.

Last week, Hong Kong real estate tycoon Cecil Chao made international news when he offered $65 million to any man that could pry his daughter from her female lover and marry her.

The 76-year old Chao has never married and is known for his penchant to date much younger women.

Cohen teamed up with Paramount this summer on The Dictator, which grossed $175 million worldwide.
