London, Oct 6: British Comedian Sacha Baron Cohen has been roped in to develop a film inspired by a Hong Kong billionaire, who has offered 65 million dollars to any man who succeeds in marrying his lesbian daughter.
'The Lesbian,' based on the story of Cecil Chao, is set to star Cohen, who will be producing the Paramount Pictures film through his company Four By Two, the BBC reported.
The movie has yet to announce a writer.
Hong Kong shipping magnate Cecil Chao had publicly promised the huge sum of money in September, after reports emerged that his businesswoman daughter, Gigi, had married her long-term girlfriend in France.
Chao has rejected the rumours of the civil partnership, and said that his daughter Gigi is still single and needs a "good husband." (ANI)
