Russell Brand signs for new project ‘The President Stole My Girlfriend’

The star will both produce and star in the new comedy

Russell Brand has signed up to produce and star in his next film project The President Stole My Girlfriend.

The British comedian and actor continues his Hollywood career with the new film for Warner Brothers, from by a script by Movie 43 scribe Matt Portenoy, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Brand said of the film:

In this movie, the president steals the girlfriend of a sexy hippie – me, obviously.

He continued: “It was inspired by the night I naively invited [Warners president] Jeff Robinov for dinner.”

The President Stole My Girlfriend will be the first movie from Brand’s Warner-based company. His movie career has appeared to stall recently following the flop of his Arthur remake, the trailer for which you can watch below. Brand can next be seen in the big screen version of metal musical Rock Of Ages.
