Megan Fox will have a cameo role in Sacha Baron Cohen's latest comedic offering.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Fox and John C. Reilly will both make cameos, while Anna Faris and Ben Kingsley will also appear in the film, which is now being filmed in New York.

Sacha's newest comedy will tell the story of an autocrat who risks his life to make sure that the country he rules and loves will never see democracy. The film has reportedly been inspired by a bestselling novel written by Saddam Hussein, called Zabibah and the King.

Larry Charles ('Bruno' and 'Borat') will direct the project, which is set to be released in May of 2012.
