Sacha Baron Cohen is set to write and star in his next movie - a comedy about a goat herder and a foreign dictator.

The film is in the early stages but will be Sacha's next project, according to Deadline Hollywood, with the Bruno star playing dual roles of a goat herder and a deposed foreign dictator who gets lost in the US.

The plot is being kept secret but the movie has apparently been pitched as Coming To America meets Trading Places.

Sacha will pen the comedy with Curb Your Enthusiasm writers Alec Berg, Jeff Schaffer and David Mandel, and all four will produce.

The film reportedly sparked a bidding war between movie studios, based on the pitch alone, but was finally won by Paramount.
