bruno-033009Sascha Baron Cohen’s latest film, Bruno, has received a NC-17 rating. The Wrap reports that the film got the rating, in part, due to a scene where the Baron’s character “appears to have anal sex with a man on camera. In another, the actor goes on a hunting trip and sneaks naked into the tent of one of the fellow hunters, an unsuspecting non-actor.”

This actually isn’t much of a surprise because Cohen’s last film, 20th Century Fox’s Borat, initially earned an NC-17 rating as well.  That film was later re-edited and got the necessary R-Rating, en route to an  impressive $128.9M domestically ($261.6M worldwide) on a budget of just $18M.

Bruno, from Universal Pictures, hits theaters on July 7, 2009.
