Sacha Baron Cohen has reportedly scrapped plans to make a comedy about the Eurovision Song Contest.
The funnyman was writing the mockumentary, about a wannabe pop star who enters the annual European singing competition, with his production partner Dan Mazer - but the duo has decided to dump the project following months of hard work.
A source tells Britain's The Sun, "Sacha and Dan have been feverishly working on the film for a long time now. They'd completed a lot of preparatory work and had a team assisting them, but they've axed the idea. They felt that it wasn't working."
Baron Cohen was reportedly set to compete at Eurovision as his alter-ego Bruno but decided to invent a completely new character after retiring the Austrian fashionista.
