Deadline reports that Baron Cohen will definitely produce the film, tentatively titled The Lesbian. He may also star as the homophobic billionaire — but please, God, not in the style of Mickey Rooney in Breakfast at Tiffany's.
Because this is a Sacha Baron Cohen movie, it will likely be envelope-pushing, which means Baron Cohen's critics will condemn it as racist and homophobic. It's far too early to say whether The Lesbian will fall into either of those categories, but in terms of potentially offensive material for Baron Cohen to adapt, it definitely fits the criteria.
