LONDON, Nov. 26 (UPI) -- British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, star of the hit film "Borat," is reportedly engaged to actress Isla Fisher and aiming for a wedding next summer.

A source has claimed that Cohen, the star and creative force behind "Borat: Cultural Learnings Of America For Make Benefit Glorious Nation Of Kazakhstan," and Fisher have agreed to a wedding date, Sky News reported.

"It took Isla nearly a year to fully convert (to the Jewish faith) and they're making wedding plans," the source claimed. "Sacha can't wait -- and there'll be a lot of A-list celebs there."

While Cohen has been making a name for himself through his portrayal of his film's racist and sexist title character, Sky News said, Fisher has stayed with more traditional fare such as a role in 2005's "Wedding Crashers."

"Borat" has had great success in both the United States and Britain since its release.
