Sacha Baron Cohen's Bruno, the follow-up to his massively successful BORAT movie, is to be released by Universal on May 15th, 2009.

It is thought that ANGELS AND DEMONS, the mystery drama starring Tom Hanks, would be the only movie to present Bruno with ant serious competition in such a release slot, reports Reuters.

Bruno will follow the exploits of gay Austrian fashion journalist, a character that was taken from Baron Cohen's former HBO series, Da Ali G Show.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the film's full title will be Bruno: Delicious Journeys Through America for the Purpose of Making Heterosexual Males Visibly Uncomfortable in the Presence of a Gay Foreigner in a Mesh T-Shirt.

Universal is now hoping that the success of BORAT will ensure that Bruno can be a hit among the high profile summer release season.

As well as ANGELS AND DEMONS, the latest Terminator movie and family comedy NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM II are scheduled for release in the same period.
