Russel Brand saying 'oui' to 'Pierre Pierre'
EXCLUSIVE: Having established a small screen presence with his FX series BRAND X WITH RUSSELL BRAND, Brit comic Russell Brand is turning his attention back to features, as he’s in early talks to star in Larry Charles’ raunchy comedy PIERRE PIERRE, reports Variety's Jeff Sneider.
Politically-incorrect laffer follows an obnoxious French nihilist (Brand) who transports a stolen painting from Paris to London. Along the way he crosses paths with a French police inspector, a serial killer named Pigeonshit and his own brothel-owning mother.
Edwin Cannistraci and Frederick Seton wrote the Black List script.
