Sacha Baron Cohen has signed an exclusive three-year first-look deal with Paramount Pictures, the studio announced. The Viacom-owned studio is releasing the provocateur’s forthcoming comedy The Dictator on May 11. The next film Cohen makes with Paramount will be the first of his three-year deal. As part of the arrangement with Cohen and his Four By Two Films banner, Paramount has also created a development fund for Cohen to generate projects in the United Kingdom to find new talent. Four By Two will be headed by Sir Todd Schulman, co-producer on The Dictator and Bruno (2009).
