Just the other day, Russell Brand was saying that he was backing off from the movies and preparing to concentrate on stand-up. However it appears he’s not backing off that far, as Variety reports he’s in early talks for Larry Charles’ new movie, Pierre Pierre.
The script by Edwin Cannistraci and Frederick Seton was originally picked up by Jason Reitman in 2008, with Jim Carrey attached to star. Now Borat and The Dictator’s Larry Charles is set to direct, with Brand possibly joining him.
The film is about a French nihilist who transports a stolen painting from Paris to London. During his journey he runs into a serial killer (named Pigeonshit), a French police inspector, and his own mother (who owns a brothel).
