That $65 million offer by a Hong Kong billionaire to find the man who could woo his lesbian daughter seemed like something out of a movie. Well, soon it could be.
According to Variety, Sacha Baron Cohen has started working on a new film based on Cecil Chao, the 76-year-old Chinese shipping industry tycoon who recently offered a fortune to try to get his lesbian daughter, Gigi, on a straight path. The offer made international headlines.
Cohen's film is tentatively titled “The Lesbian.”
Despite what many may think, Gigi Chao said she wasn't upset with her father for making such public offer.
"I'm actually on very, very loving terms with my father. We speak on a daily basis. He just has a very interesting way of expressing his fatherly love,” the 33-year-old told the Associated Press.
Gigi is married to her wife in France. According to the Telegraph, she has also dated men in the past.
Not a whole lot more in known about the movie, other than that Cohen is expected to act in it.
