Sacha Baron Cohen has signed a three-year first-look deal with Paramount Pictures, who have hailed him as a ''comic genius''.
The British comedy star - who shocked worldwide audiences at the Academy Awards when he dressed as General Alladeen from his new movie 'The Dictator' and spilt the ''ashes'' of Kim Jong-Il over Ryan Seacrest - has committed to a three-year deal with the studio, which will also work with him to nurture new talent in the UK.
Brad Grey, chairman of Paramount Pictures, said: ''Sacha is a comic genius. A wildly talented writer, actor and filmmaker. Beyond that he is a rare global comedy star.

With moviegoers increasingly shunning 3D screenings -- only about a third of the audiences for last weekend's Green Lantern -- opted to see it in 3D -- director Michael Bay has gone on a media offensive to get out the word that the 3D they'll get with next weekend's Transformers Dark of the Moon is something special. He told today's (Wednesday) New York Times that he has called the CEOs of the major theater chains and urged them to show the movie in a way that may burn out their projector bulbs more quickly but will make the picture on the screen look brighter and sharper. Paramount Chairman Brad Grey told the newspaper, "We're putting all of our resources into this. ... It's the most spectacular visual experience I have ever seen." The studio's vice chairman, Rob Moore, observed that he realizes that the public is beginning to feel burned by 3D surcharges. "They're tired of sitting in a theater thinking, 'Wait, is this movie in 3D or not?' Well, with 'Transformers' people are going to leave saying, 'You absolutely must see this in 3D.'" The Times said that the cost of shooting the movie with Avatar director James Cameron's 3D crew added $30 million to the film's $165-million budget.

The Departed is based on the Hong Kong blockbuster Infernal Affairs, in which a cop goes undercover in the mob while the mob places one of their own as a mole in the police force. In Scorsese's version, the scene shifts to Boston, where mob boss Frank Costello (Jack Nicholson) puts loyal-from-boyhood employee Colin Sullivan (Matt Damon) through police training. As Sullivan rises through the ranks, Special Investigations Unit chiefs Queenan (Martin Sheen) and Dignam (Mark Wahlberg) recruit rookie Billy Costigan (Leonardo DiCaprio) to get "kicked off" the force and do time to gain Costello's confidence.

And so Burton takes a third stab at the remake game with Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, an update/remake (call it what you want) of the beloved 1971 movie Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and Roald Dahl's classic children's novel. But the stakes here are far greater than they were with Apes. That was a campy sci-fi movie that no one really cared about. In fact, the original Apes had long since killed itself under the weight of four increasingly awful sequels. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory frequently tops "Favorite Movie Ever" lists, and news of the remake has met with nothing but scorn from fans (including 1971 star Gene Wilder, who later retracted his scathing remarks).
