Sacha Baron Cohen has reportedly axed his new film about the Eurovision Song Contest.

The Bruno star had been collaborating with screen-writer Dan Mazer about the Working Title spoof about a wannabe pop star entering the singing contest.

But The Sun reports a source saying: "Sacha and Dan have been feverishly working on the film for a long time now, they'd completed a lot of preparatory work and had a team assisting them, but they've axed the idea - they felt that it wasn't working."

Sacha - who shot to worldwide fame for screen characters such as Ali G, Borat and Bruno - was originally expected to present at the Oscars, but dropped out following concerns from the event's organisers about a proposed sketch.
