The real reason there will never be another Borat movie

In a feature in Variety, Cohen made a blunt but not totally unexpected announcement: though Borat did return after fourteen years, fans aren’t going to get a third Borat film any time soon… or likely at all.

Cohen’s mental state was a big factor when it came to retiring the character of Borat originally; as he told Variety, after making so many movies where he inhabits other characters, he felt scarred and frightened. “After Bruno, I was fairly traumatized,” Cohen admitted. “For about six months afterwards whenever I heard a police siren, I would start to get tense, because I’d been chased by the police so much. I vowed never to make another undercover movie again.”

However, one big factor brought Cohen out of character retirement: President Donald Trump, who won the Presidency in 2016 only to lose the 2020 election to the former Vice President, President-elect Joe Biden. “I felt democracy was in peril, I felt people’s lives were in peril and I felt compelled to finish the movie,” Cohen told Variety. “The movie was originally about the danger of Trump and Trumpism. What coronavirus demonstrated was that there’s a lethal effect to his spreading of lies and conspiracy theories.”

“I brought Borat out because of Trump,” Cohen said simply. However, he was also incredibly clear about Borat’s future: “There was a purpose to this movie, and I don’t really see the purpose to doing it again. So yeah, he’s locked away in the cupboard.”

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm is available to stream on Amazon Prime now.
