Borat 2 is reportedly set to drop on Amazon Prime next month just in time for election day.

The sequel to the beloved cult movie will be released on the streaming giant, with fans set to enjoy the catchily titled Borat: Gift of Pornographic Monkey to Vice Premiere Mikhael Pence to Make Benefit Recently Diminished Nation of Kazakhstan, according to Deadline.

The site reports that the Sacha Baron Cohen flick, which seems to focus on Vice President Mike Pence, will be released to Amazon subscribers in 240 countries and territories in October, 14 years after the original.

Sacha has written the screenplay alongside Anthony Hines, Dan Swimer, Peter Baynham, Erica Rivinoja, Dan Mazer, Jena Friedman, and Lee Kern.

The sequel was reportedly ‘secretly filmed’ and the actor even screened the movie for a ‘select few’ industry executives, according to Collider.

Among the stunts for the new film, the actor has been accused of crashing a right-wing rally, with former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani claiming he also was a victim of one of the actor’s pranks.

Borat (or, to give it the respect of its full title, Borat! Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan) was first released in 2006.

Directed by Larry Charles, the film follows the fictitious Kazakh journalist on his travels through the United States – later proposing to Pamela Anderson before trying to kidnap her.

The film was a hit, making $262 million (£203 million) worldwide.

Cohen, 48, who is also well-known for his stunts, had vowed never to bring back the character as he was now too recognisable to trick people.

Speaking to Deadline in 2012, Cohen said: ‘When you make a movie like [Borat], you want to make sure that the people you’re interviewing are deserving targets, so, you don’t just want to interview some doorman at a hotel.

‘You want to interview the incredibly wealthy guests at the penthouse, high-ranking politicians or people who are threatening.

‘The problem is, it is definitely challenging, especially now with Twitter and Facebook. It’s very, very hard to get away with.’

Metro.co.uk has contacted Amazon for comment.

Borat 2 is slated for release in late October.
