Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. Meanwhile in a tradition of the land-of-dreams turn of events, the role of Johnny Depp in his bopic will be played the multi-award winning Sasha Baron Cohen (Paradise Now), who beat contenders like Ben Stiller (Zoolander) and Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier's Entourage). "Borat and Burno" will be produced at USD400 million, making it the biggest film ever. The untitled Johnny Depp biopic is to be made by Singapore film production house Originasian Pictures for USD50, they are in the midst of securing the funding.
