Sacha Baron Cohen’s Untitled Bruno Project (previously titled Bruno: Delicious Journeys Through America for The Purpose of Making Heterosexual Males Visibly Uncomfortable in the Presence of a Gay Foreigner in a Mesh T-shirt) has received an early summer release date. It’s set to open May 15, 2009 against the summer blockbuster heavy hitter Angels & Demons, sequel to The Da Vinci Code.

Cohen’s Bruno character is based on another character from U.K Channel 4’s Da Ali G Show. He's a flamboyant Austrian fashion television host who interviews unsuspecting people. His interviewees, like the ones who were victims of Cohen's Borat character in 2006, think Bruno is real. Classic Bruno situations from the TV show included the character asking former University of Alabama running back Shaud Williams if he is allowed to date other players on the football team, trying to dance with men at a square dance in Georgia, and interviewing frat boy spring breakers in Daytona Beach, FL.

Cohen’s Borat brought in $128 million dollars for Fox and Universal, and they're hoping that success has made Cohen a big enough name to open in the summer blockbuster season. The following week of May 22nd features the debut of Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins, and family comedy Night at the Museum II: Escape From the Smithsonian. With the Vatican ban on Angels & Demons, Bruno may be pulling in a big Catholic audience that weekend… or maybe not. I know I’ll be praying that they keep the amazing original title.
